Hello my name is Tom Hamilton, and I saw a lady singer called Mary Smith, I thought that she was great, and I also like her CD called of Rouges and lovers, which is also good.

I just hope that she will be back at Irvine Folk club.

Tom frae Saltcoats.

Tom, thanks so much for the kind words. It was great meeting you and another mudcatter, dickmac, at the Irvine club. It was a wonderful evening - the Irvine folk club has a great atmosphere, it's a pity they may have to change venues soon because the Redburn hotel is being torn down.

There were some great floor singers that night too, including Tom frae Saltcoats who did an impressive version of "It Takes a Worried Man" and then accompanied Dickmac and another gentleman on a couple of songs, including "Willie McBride" in honor of Veterans Day.

One thing that has struck me is how much Scottish folkies know about American folk music and how well they perform it! Most of them know more than I do especially when it comes to blues, bluegrass, country, etc.

I've now spent so much time in Scotland that it's starting to feel like home - I'm even getting used to the other side of the road driving. I'll be in Girvan next Friday, and then back home.

I suppose this is a different Mary Smith; the one I know is from Lewis and sings in Gaelic (and is also known as Màiri Nic a' Ghobhainn)

Mary---you didn't by any chance hear where the Irvine folkies intend to nest in future?. And Tam--any vestiges of the Harbour Band still on the go?

No,I am not the Mary Smith that sings in Gaelic.

Boab, they only received the news recently and they are looking for a new place. I don't know what the time frame is for the move but it appears definite - the hotel will be torn down to make way for luxury housing. It's too bad because the Redburn has a nice setup - a large room with a smaller one off to the side. When they have bands or performers that draw a large crowd they can use the big one and for small crowds they have the small room so it is more intimate. Also there's plenty of parking. Joyce said they were talking with some people but nobody is as accomodating as the Redburn has been.
