We’ve now surfaced from what was a successful Celtic Connections appearance so here’s an update on our activities. The ‘band and guests’ concert, at a packed Old Fruitmarket in Glasgow, kicked off Rab’s 70/50 in 2017 shows.
There are many more to come, both solo and with guests, and the first half of the year is listed later in this missive.
Here’re links to a couple of reviews of the concert:- http://www.scotsman.com/lifestyle/culture/music/music-review-rab-noakes-1-4357144 https://captaingrumping.blogspot.co.uk/
The new CD, The Treatment Tapes EP has been well-received

I appeared on Radio Scotland’s Janice Forsyth Show on Feb 1st – just before the Celtic Connections concert.

(I’m in the final half hour – it’ll be available until Friday March 3rd).
I await further notice of appearances on both Radio2’s Folk Show and Radio6’s Tom Robinson Show.
I’ll let you know as soon as they’re confirmed.
Our seasonal Neon Records bargains will be available at www.rabnoakes.com/shop until Sunday February 26th.
Buy the new record, ‘The Treatment Tapes EP’ along with either ‘I’m walkin’ here’ or ‘Red Pump Special’ on CD for £15.00 + £2.50 P&P. This’ll save you about a fiver.
Also, we’d like to see the few remaining vinyl copies of ‘I’m walkin’ here’ spinning on turntables instead of languishing in our storeroom. There’s a fiver off that too. It’ll be £15.00 + £4.00 P&P
