Busy week­end ahead

The Oban Times - - Letters -

THIS com­ing week­end in Glas­gow is giv­ing me a bit of a headache.

Such is the mul­ti­tude of in­cred­i­ble events, I am at a com­plete loss as to how to spend my Fri­day and Satur­day nights.

Satur­day night is the real headache. Sea­saidh Lexy - Gaelic’s very own hi­lar­i­ous drag queen - is in the Mitchell Theatre; while Iain Costello MacIver is per­form­ing for Ceòl’s Craic’s an­nual Oid­hche Amer­i­cana in the Cen­tre for Con­tem­po­rary Arts.

Costello is a leg­end of the Gaelic mu­sic world, but Calum Mackin­non do­ing Sea­saidh Lexy is a leg­end of the Gaelic com­edy world.

There is also the op­tion of go­ing through to Ed­in­burgh to hear the Lewis Psalm Singers in con­cert. I think, for many, what to at­tend will have to be de­cided on the flip of a coin.

The week­end starts early with the al­ways en­joy­able Co­munn an Taobh an Iar open­ing ceilidh in the El­lan­gowan So­cial Club in Mil­ngavie.

Then, on Fri­day night, the Don­ald Black Band is live in con­cert in the pip­ing cen­tre, Otago Street.

I wrote last week about Don­ald wish­ing me to de­scribe him as a young Elvis look-alike.

He told me this week that, hav­ing read my ar­ti­cle, he now wants to drive ev­ery­where in a pink cadil­lac. It seems West High­land moothie play­ers are a unique breed of celebrity.

Also that night

is the Glas­gow
