Two big gigs for Ceòl ’s Craic in Jan­uary

The Oban Times - - Letters -

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.
