Tremendous stuff maycut. You are lucky to have seen such talent.

Good Guy Joe Walsh helps Frankie Miller

Postby Dexter St. Clair » Mon Nov 12, 2007 9:30 pm

Joe Walsh played a Frankie Miller tribute at the Barrowland and possibly suggested The Eagles record a Frankie Miller song.

My current favourite song is Daddy's Gone by Glasvegas, who unsurprisingly are a local band and I'm guessing, fairly new . According to their website they are unsigned but the aforementioned song is currently on the playlist of BBC 6Music. Could be ones to watch for 2008! Anyone seen them live ?

Belle and Sebastian have launched a 2008 'Toast To Glasgow' calendar, featuring photos of the band in their favourite places in the city!

Jimmy McHugh

Postby onyirtodd » Mon Dec 31, 2007 1:24 pm

"Jimmy McHugh, was born in 1930 in Omagh, Co Tyrone, but was raised in Ballykerrigan, near Glenfinn, Co Donegal. In 1946, Jimmy and his family moved to Glasgow, a city to which so many of the county's people migrated that it is sometimes known as the 'capital' of Donegal.
In Glasgow, Jimmy became involved in the traditional music scene, helping to form the Four Provinces Céilí Band in the late 1940s and remaining its bandleader until his death in 1999. He and his wife, Ann, formed the first branch of Comhaltas outside Ireland in 1957, a year in which Jimmy also won the All-Ireland Senior fiddle title at Dungarvan, also the first person living outside the country to do so. While back home he established Glasgow's first session, began composing his own tunes and was still participating in sessions until a week before his death."

I first came across Jimmy in the Office Bar in Eglinton Street and followed the session he led to Sharkeys near the Citz. He was a fine musician who was enormously generous with help and advice for anyone struggling with a tune.

Passionate Friends anyone? I remember this band playing in Nightmoves on Sunday nights, and I'm sure they did an OGWT christmas or new year special with Runrig and Big Country, although I don't think Runrig or PF were shown on tv.

Isn't that veteran panto/clubland performer and serial Variety-show-in-the-80's botherer Christian?
Is he still working? He does seem to have gone the way of Chain Letters hosting, panto specialist Allan Stewart.

I used to bump into him a lot in the early 90s as our then manger had a sideline doing music for him.
