Adam McNaughton with Finlay Allison, Edinburgh Folk Club, Wednesday 27th May 2009

Venue: Pleasance Cabaret Bar - 8:00pm
Admission: £7.00 (£6.00 concession)


Adam McNaughtan is a Scottish folk singer and song writer, noted for his songs on post-War Glasgow. Amongst his works are The Jeely Piece Song, a humorous song about tower blocks and Where Is The Glasgow That I Used To Know, which was quoted by Prince Charles at the opening of the 1988 Glasgow Garden Festival. A product of the Scottish Folk Revival of the 60s, he has been writing, collecting and singing songs for three decades and has become one of the best-loved Glasgow characters.

Surprisingly, this is Adam's first ever solo gig at Edinburgh Folk Club although he has appeared as part of The Carrying Stream and also with Stramash over the years. We look forward to a whole evening of song and humour in Adam's own inimitable style.

On this occasion, Adam will be accompanied by Finlay Allison who is a fine exponent of the fiddle,mandolin, and other stringy things. ;-)

Refresh, because all the Scottish musicians/singers I've heard lately are gems.

"
Then he read in the papers some scientist say
How yer hert can be helped wae twa asprins a day
And the very next moarnin the Herald declare't
Drinkin wine wae yer meal must be good for yer hert.

"Eureka !" cried Erchie "the method tae beat them all"
"Is a wee gless o' Eldo and two paracetamol"
But he thought since his hale life he's aye been teto"al
Wan gless widnae dae so he drank the hale boa"le.

Then oan wae his Reeboks doonsters he did flee
Right in front o' a bus number 44B
It knocked him six metres a terrible sight
But the autopsy showed his cholesterol wis right.

It wis some consolation tae his family physician
That he died with his hert in a perfect condition"

My chance of surviving is small ..."

Wish I could be there!
