Thread Name: Matt McGinn New York tribute concert
Subject: RE: Matt McGinn tribute concert
I see there already was a thread about Matt McGinn concerts so I thought I would add on to it.
Scotland is busy with Matt McGinn tribute concerts; the next being a May Day Celebration as follows:
KEEPING McGINN ALIVE
30 years after his death the popularity of Matt McGinn's music, humour and values continues to gain momentum. The latest celebration of his life "We'll Have a May Day" will be performed on the first Sunday in May as part of the Glasgow May Day annual celebrations. As a lifelong socialist the history, struggle and sacrifice of the workers of Chicago where the labour May Day rallies originated was important to Matt and most May Days found him demonstrating with other workers as part of the Glasgow rally. It is fitting that he himself should now be remembered by the Glasgow City Council and Glasgow District Trades Council as part of the May Day celebrations.
Three great groups - Stramash; The Cameron Band with Andy Hamilton and Reawakening - introduced by Andy Duncan, a singer and performer, first influenced by his "Uncle Matt" will entertain in St Andrew's in the Square on this special day in what promises to be an unforgettable musical tribute to this extraordinary man.
SUNDAY 6TH MAY, AT 7.30. ST ANDREWS IN THE SQUARE.
Tickets www.secxtra.com or St Enoch's Centre Booking Office.
