Ur­ban Teuchtars go down a storm

The Oban Times - - Letters -

THE UR­BAN Teuchtars - Kath­leen MacInnes and Sineag Macin­tyre - put on a great night of songs, tunes, and craic in the MacK­in­tosh church on Mary­hill Road on Satur­day Jan­uary 23, in front of a large au­di­ence.

The fun­ni­est part of the evening was the band’s re­ac­tion to dis­cov­er­ing the venue’s bar was al­co­hol free - a fairly for­eign con­cept to two girls from South Uist!

That cer­tainly didn’t stop the au­di­ence en­joy­ing them­selves.

Sineag and Kath­leen were joined on stage by Seon­aidh Macin­tyre on pipes and whis­tles, who also gave a song, Al­lan Nairn on gui­tar and melodeon, An­drew Macpher­son on pipes, bodhran and drums and Ross Wil­son on dou­ble-bass and pi­ano.

For the fi­nal song, they asked Cathal Mccon­nell - a founder mem­ber of Boys of the Lough more than 45 years ago - up onto the stage to join them. This was a lovely mo­ment.

Cathal is a true Ir­ish gen­tle­man and still an amaz­ing singer.

Their en­core, the old Uist clas­sic Uib­hist Mo Ghràidh, stut­tered com­i­cally to an en­dear­ingly un­re­hearsed fin­ish.

It left the au­di­ence leav­ing the church with a smile on their face.
