And We’ll Sing........
« Gepost op: 18 apr 2013, 07:56 »
The search is over. After extensive efforts to try and unearth information about the actual date of Runrig’s first gig, we finally have some positive news. We were looking for anybody who might have been present at that first ceilidh – someone who might have taken a photograph – old archives held by the organisers, the North Uist and Bernera Association – old archives kept by the venue, the Kelvin Hall.

Alas, all efforts drew a blank. We knew it was April and we thought it was a Saturday night, and Rory, Calum and Blair certainly remembered turning up in purple shirts and bow ties and calling themselves The Run-Rig Dance Band . . . but nobody knew the date.

However, Highland newspapers back then often included a weekly What’s On in the City or a Letter From Glasgow type column, and as Malcolm was checking out the Oban Times archive one afternoon, last month, he finally had his eureka moment and unearthed the ‘Holy Grail’.

So now we have it – Happy Birthday Runrig – Saturday, April 28th, 1973. To recognise and celebrate the occasion the band are releasing a new song. It’s called And We’ll Sing and it was recorded last month in CaVa Studios, Glasgow. Some of you might remember a version of it ending the last run of shows on the Rewired Tour. We would like to raise a glass and thank you for your incredible support over four decades and we would like to share this song with you all. It will be available on this site on the 28th.

Ach ja, ik had Mieke en haar mr. X er nog mee willen feliciteren...
maar eh... al kwekkend raak je hier de data 'n beetje kwijt...

Nou, Mieke, alsnog:
Proficiat met 't 40-jarig jubileum van Runrig :bagpipe
Bedenk je er zelf even de andere enthousiaste poppetjes bij?   :tongue3:
Elke dag is een kans er (weer) iets moois van te maken
