Dick Gaughan and Friends at Celtic Connections 2011

Dick Gaughan
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.
