Blink, blink, yourself, if that's me you're talking to as I didn't repost it.

Last year, when the ad went up it was for a specific reason: to announce the reopening of Partick Folk Club.

It's been going strong ever since and has a dedicated section on the website and is promoted through our what's on.

Many apologies everyone...especially to Pat...when I saw the date for the Moonshiners on the 2008 notice...I assumed it was for 2009....they are also on near the start of the season [next month] this year....I was also wrong footed as I didnt realise St Peters Hall had been going since last year...I last played there two years ago...

Will be more careful on this site in future....

and hope we all have busy successful gigs at the club!

I have never heard the Tattie song before. I have shared that with cousins who live overseas. The older ones will, hopefully still understand the accent. Not sure about the young ones though. :)

I'm sure they'll enjoy it, hingmie. If they've been talking to you on the phone regularly then that should help with their understanding of the accent.:)

Cruachan are very entertaining. Jim Shearer the only original member is a force of nature and hilarious and John Malcolm sings a very funny song that everyone loves - The Lost Sock song. Can't find it on YouTube though.

Tich Frier at Partick Folk Club

Friday 25th March, 2011

It's more than forty years since Tich Frier started singing folk songs in his home town of Edinburgh.

In that time he has shared stages with some of the greats of folk music and taken his passion for folksong half way round the world and back.

He is known for his great voice, skilled guitar work and uncontrollable sense of humour.

Since his recovery from cancer in 2003 he has returned to performing with renewed vigour.

His repertoire is taken from the tradition and some of the finest writers around. It is continually nourished by new songs from his own pen and often from sources not obviously "folkie". It is linked together by his unique brand of frequently surreal tall stories.

His Burns Supper based show; "ONE MAN'S BURNS" has been much acclaimed.

His most recent CD, "Shanghaied", released in 2007 is his best work to date.

A thing of power and beauty.

"A richly textured album",****

Scotland on Sunday.

"Worth waiting for", LivingTradition
