Brought up in Glasgow, Mary Ann Kennedy, widely known for her outstanding musical collaborations and broadcasting career, will perform songs from her new album ‘Glaschu’. “These songs are the story of the Gaels in Glasgow before me, but it’s the also the story of every new arrival community in any city the world over – the themes are universal.” A vibrant collection of vignettes, from the city’s main artery - the River Clyde, to street-life and markets, social deprivation and religious tension, and traditional Scottish sport and play. Delivered with spirit, feeling and laughter, ‘Glaschu’ tells the story of growing up as an urban Gael and revels in the wit and vivid songwriting of some of the great Glaswegian Gaels. Mary Ann is joined on stage by guitarist and long-time musical partner Finlay Wells (Coast).
“Mary Ann Kennedy is one of the finest interpreters of Gaelic song and an inspiring and vital force on the traditional Scots music scene”
“This is one from the heart… which finely expresses her commitment to Gaelic song as an ongoing culture.”
Jim Gilchrist, The Scotsman
