EFC have decided to make our own unofficial contribution to this "Homecoming" nonsense but, nevertheless, it's a great excuse to welcome back two of Scotland's best loved singers.

"Widely recognised as the foremost male traditional singer in Scotland, Rod has already produced a large body of recorded work to support that point of view as well as stage productions, including The Ship and The Big Picnic, and featured on many radio and TV productions, including The Transatlantic Sessions with Emmylou Harris and Phil Cunningham.

He has two solo albums to his credit together with the three Easy Club recordings, the new definitive series of discs of the songs of Robert Burns (of which Rod is a renowned interpreter), Fergusson's Auld Reekie and many other album recording sessions. "

"Gill Bowman is a confident and highly entertaining performer with a strong commitment both to her native music and to her own diverse and perceptive songs. She communicates that commitment with a nicely judged blend of wicked humour and sincerity.

Recently, Gill has branched out theatrically, writing and performing her atmospheric one woman show, Toasting The Lassies, which tells the story of the women in the life of Robert Burns "

Neither myself or my alter ego will be able to give this thread much attention over the next week or so.

Therefore, all interested parties are invited to give our opening night an occasional "bump"....

Hello Ms Bogle!

Well, I wouldn't say I'm one of the best known interpreters of Burns! :) ...but I like to think I
do a nice, 'Aye Waulkin' O', 'Dainty Davie' & Gowden Locks O' Anna :)

However....on the occasion of Wed 14th Jan - I will be sticking firmly to my sound/lighting/raffle/filming capacities!

Looking forward to this great night.

David

Hi Tattie Bogle,

Just as well I don't have to spell out the lyrics while I sing them! :D

I've just come back from Toni Mitchell's humorous-as-ever gig at The Wee Folk Club tonight, where I was informed by Paddy, that I'm to be given the honour of meeting you all at the entrance (money) table this Wednesday 14th as our 'Friendly Treasurer' is off on a wee holiday (well deserved no doubt).

I shall go off to practise a welcoming smile and slightly irritating money counting/jingling techniques (to be put into practice during start of second half of concert) after hugely successful raffle (with very exciting prizes) ticket sales*

See you Wednesday!
