Subject: Glasgow Ballad Workshop - Jan/Feb 2014
From: GUEST,Guest Anne Neilson
Date: 05 Jan 14 - 11:06 AM

During the increasingly eclectic programme of events for Celtic Connections 2014, Glasgow Ballad Workshop is proud to present a series of three (independent) events which showcase traditional song at its best.

SUN 19th JANUARY -- a grand get-together of TOM SPIERS and ARTHUR WATSON from northeast Scotland, with a rare and special repertoire of songs and ballads from the area with arguably the most spectacular range of traditional songs. Both count themselves lucky to have been members of Aberdeen Folk Club when regular visitors included Jeannie Robertson, Jimmy McBeath and Lizzie Higgins. And their association with the late Peter Hall in the group The Gaugers gave them access to Peter's fine archive of field recordings.

SUN 26th JANUARY -- as close as we could manage to Burns' Night, we are delighted to welcome SHEENA WELLINGTON -- known to most Scots for her rendition of Burns' 'A Man's a Man' at the opening of the Scottish Parliament. But Sheena has been respected on the folk scene for many years prior to that, for her true, clear voice; her wide-ranging repertoire; and her ability to pen a fine song herself!
And don't be surprised if there are a few kent faces to contribute some of Burns' poetry as well as his fine songs, both written and collected.

SUN 2nd FEBRUARY -- This is an event in the making: the equivalent last year was when the Young Yins of the Workshop took up the challenge and delivered a very popular and well-received afternoon of ballads.
This year the gauntlet has been thrown down to the Auld Yins to share the responsibility, so watch this space for further information!

All events take place in Avant Garde bar in King Street (very near the Tron Theatre), where host Billy opens the doors around noon, which gives plenty time for a bowl of good home-made soup or a couple of pints before a 1pm start.

Only proviso is that space is limited and we've already got good interest from workshop members -- so please BOOK IN ADVANCE!

You can either email me -- neilsonanne@ymail.com -- or phone 01355 239592.

Would be lovely to see some 'Catters there!

Apologies for omitting an important pice of information -- the price for each event is £7 or £5 for members and concessions.

And that's a bargain, IMHO!

We've now finalised the details for our third event on 2/2/14.

This will be on the theme of 'Fifty Shades of Love'!

Don't know whether or not that will excite response from the masses, but it will certainly permit our residents to indulge their preferences for murder, suicide, cuckoldry, deceit, pride, honour, patriotism etc. etc.

Because of the restrictions of space at our venue, I need to forewarn you that a couple of the events are heading towards capacity and that turning up on the day will not necessarily guarantee entry!

So, best advice is to commit in advance and book through me --

Every time my Norton does a PC tune-up it wipes the cookies: suppose I could set it not to. Also I suspect that every time Mudcat is taken offline, as happens fairly regularly, our cookies go with it!

Well, Anne Neilson, our Glorious Leader, has had something of a health scare this week. She's fine and being taken care of, and, nae doot, itching to get back to normal.

All three workshops will go ahead as planned - although without her guiding hand, they are likely to be a little more chaotic than normal - so this bump is a reminder that we've got Tom Spiers and Arthur Watson this Sunday coming.

If you've not already booked and plan to come along, please please email balladworkshop@btinternet.com instead of emailing Anne. As Anne said upthread, we are limited on numbers so it's a good idea.

It's going to be a braw afternoon's entertainment from Tom and Arthur, and hopefully, contributions from whoever turns up... And we'll find something to raffle...

Good news that our dear Ekanne is out of hospital with "shiny new stent" fitted, and sounds remarkably chirpy.
As Drumshanty says above, please use the special email address if you want to reserve places at any of the forthcoming workshops.

The excellent news is that EKAnne is back in actionand once more is in full control of the bookings.
If you want to go to the upcoming SHEENA WELLINGTON and FIFTY SHADES OF LOVE events (26th January and 2nd February) do get in touch with her at -
neilsonanne@ymail.com or phone 01355 239592.
Hoping to see you, and looking for a good turnout. If you missed the great gig we had for Tom Spiers and Arthur Watson, now's a chance to catch up.
