The Jimmie Macgregor’s Gathering concert will take place Friday, January 14th at 7:30 pm at St Andrew’s in the Square in Glasgow.
It’s over 50 years since Jimmie Macgregor arrived in London from Glasgow with an old Abbott-Victor guitar, lured by the early folk, skiffle’n’blues scene. Before the 1950s were out, Macgregor and his double-act partner Robin Hall were en route to becoming Britain’s most famous folk musicians ever, appearing every weeknight on the BBC’s Tonight show for well over a decade, later hosting Hullabaloo and The White Heather Club.
After a multi-award-winning subsequent career as a TV outdoor guide and radio presenter, his new show reunites his music with his peerless skills as a communicator, including recollections of star encounters from John Wayne to Jimmy Shand.
