Two big gigs for Ceòl ’s Craic in January
JANUARY’S going to be a busy month for Ceòl ’s Craic – an organ- isation which stages Gaelic cultural events in Glasgow – as it has two big events to look forward to.
The first of these nights is a free- entry film night in the Centre for Contemporary Arts cinema on Sauchiehall Street on Tuesday January 12 at 6.30pm.
The film, entitled ‘Am Braighe ’s am Bayou’, explores the themes and motivations that run through the music of Blair Douglas, founder member of Runrig, Mactalla, Cliar and Tional.
The film takes the form of a travelogue, following Blair from his home in Braes to the Bayou of Louisiana in search of musical inspiration.
Ceòl ’s Craic is also staging a concert with Gaels Le Chèile at Celtic Connections on Saturday January 16. The concert stars Tional, a band made up of Blair Douglas, Christine Primrose, Billy Ross, Arthur Cormack, Decker Forrest and Iain Smith.
They will be joined by Dominic Mac Giolla Bríde and Gràinne Brady, Ryan Murphy and Adam Brown.
It is a line-up full of phenomenal musicians and looks like it will be a cracker of a night. This is also being held in the CCA, on Sauchiehall Street, and will begin at 7.30pm.
