We had our HIGH SPIRITS album launch on Wednesday 7th October in Stereo, Glasgow. A lot of hard work had gone into organising the launch and so we were delighted to have such a big audience come out for the party.
The night started off with some great songs and guitar from Innes Watson. Our favourite was definitely his version of ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams. Mec Lir were next on the bill with a foot stomping set.
We were joined on stage by our band; Paul Mc Clure on bodhrán, Cammy Maxwell on bass and Craig Irving on guitar. We played the whole album from start to finish. Tom Callister (Mec Lir) and Innes Watson joined us on stage for the 5/8s set to recreate the Gráchestra which we had recorded on the album. For the encore we invited everyone back on stage for a few big sets all together. Innes sang a song and then we finished off with a big set of reels.
Then to finish off the night we had a trad disco! It was fantastic to see some many folk up dancing to trad and folk music. More trad discos we say!
Thanks to everyone who made the night a success, to Kevin O’Neill on sound, Somhairle MacDonald who videoed the night (videos to follow in a wee while) and Alistair Cassidy who took some fantastic photos throughout the night. Click on the pictures below to browse through all of them 🙂
