News August 17th 2017

Hiya all
The mid-August shows went well – here’s a wee review of the ‘In Conversation’ at the Edinburgh Fringe:-

Following those shows here’s a third (short) newsletter this month.

The main thing I’m here to remind you of is the fact that  THE WEBSITE SHOP WILL BE CLOSED FOR REFURBISHMENT FROM SATURDAY AUGUST 19TH to SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 30TH.

The recently-available ‘Bridging the Gaps’ CD package is doing well at www.rabnoakes.com/shop.
It contains the 1972 album ‘Rab Noakes’ on A&M, 1978’s ‘Restless’ on Ring O’Records and the 1980 album ‘Rab Noakes’ on MCA. It’s all the original album tracks plus some bonus songs. They include a b-side which didn’t feature on an album, a version specially recorded for a single, an out-take, a rehearsal recording and a version edited and mixed for a single.
All three LPs are placed chronologically on this double-CD which totals 37 tracks.
It’ll be priced at £9.99 for download (full album only) and £14.99 + P&P for CDs.
The official release-date is October 6th so, get this now for pre-release possession.
BUT DON’T FORGET, THE SHOP CLOSES FOR SIX WEEKS from SATURDAY AUGUST 19TH.

Over and above my solo shows,
I’ll flag up one thing that’s in the future.
I received a communication from Eva Lees and Ross MacFadyen asking me if I’d do a fundraiser for Celtic Music Radio.
CMR is a highly-valued, and valuable radio service available on 95FM in Glasgow and online at http://www.celticmusicradio.net/.
I am of course delighted to support this essential resource and suggested a collaboration with some pals and we’ve come up with The Marchtown Prophets – Gillian Frame, Jill Jackson, Findlay Napier and me with a one-off group from a one-off event. It’s at The Glad Café in Shawlands on Sunday November 26th
