Celtic Connections 2011 will present Dick Gaughan and Friends on Friday, January 14th at Òran Mórin Glasgow.
July 2011 marks 40 years since Dick Gaughan – then living in a Wimbledon hippy commune – recorded his debut album No More Forever, on a 2-Track Revox in legendary producer Bill Leader’s London front room. That’s the kind-of anniversary peg for this kind-of retrospective show, which will start with Gaughan solo, performing a couple of tracks each from his first decade’s releases, up to 1981’s landmark Handful of Earth.
At this point the friends start making an appearance – including guitarist Stuart Nisbet, bassist Iain “Nico” Bruce, drummer Jim McDermott and vocal trio The Bevvy Sisters – reflecting the continued restless progression of Gaughan’s unique oeuvre.
