dr ph

Dr Phil has announced his second Concert to take place at The newly refurbished Dunoon Burgh Hall on February 14th, the 90th Anniversary of Mississippi John Hurt’s first recordings in Memphis, Tennessee in 1928.                                                                                  This Concert follows the very well received Ari Esinger concert which took place in October 2017 in which Dr Phil along with Blue John and Guy (the Mechanic) Pate entertained a nearly Full House  .

blue-john-media-212x300

This multi-media presentation, accompanied by story-telling and music performances by Dr Phil, tells the fascinating and often humorous story of John Hurt from his birth to freed slaves, through the trials and tribulations of being black in rural Mississippi in the first half of the last century, to his initial discovery in 1928 and subsequent rediscovery in 1963. The presentation also features the playing of rare examples of Mississippi John Hurt’s original 78 rpm records from 1928 played on a 1920s wind-up Victrola phonograph. The presentation will be followed by a concert focussing on the music of Mississippi John Hurt.

DR-PHIL-JOHN-HURT-207x300

Dr-Phil lives near Dunoon and presents the definitive Southern Blues programmer “Sounds of The South” on DCR97.4FM and wrote the award winning biography of Mississippi John Hurt.                                                                                                                                The presentation and concert will be at Dunoon Burgh Hall on 14th February, 2018; doors open 7:30 for 8:00 pm.

“I didn’t realise at the time that at the end of a day’s walking on the Camino de Santiago, when I was tired but happy, that the thoughts I was writing down would one day be a book. I’m proud that I’ve written this and hope that one day it inspires someone to do something they dream about.”

My first book – “My Camino Dream” Iain McKie December 2017

ian-mckie-3-300x225

 

Iain McKie presented his first programme here on Dunoon Community Radio on the 15th December 2015 , some of you will remember Iain was first introduced to the listeners as a guest on Tuesday’s TLLLVLBS with Victor and Carol and made such an impression not only with the DCR97.4FM team but with the listeners that he was asked to return the following week and then the next and now has been given his very own programme.

Iain’s weekly show “perpetual dreams” is a time to sit back, have fun and listen to a incredible variety of music, many tunes the choice of the listeners. There is also the chance to talk about some of the positive things in life with a weekly inspirational quote while Iain will look at the fun side of any issues that may require help with.

Since the start of his programme Iain has invited guest into the studio to chat not only well known personalities but folk talking about social issues and community matters and even medical issues such as the Vaginal Mesh controversy always keen to bring to his listeners attention important matters that need a wee push.

Iain-Profile-300x206

Iain is always ready to promote achievement of groups or individuals be it folk involved in the arts or physical activities like  a youngster’s baton Twirlers troupe or championing local girl Rachel Bowie Scotland B team captain.

It wasn’t long after Iain started his programme when he started telling his listeners about a book he was reading and how inspirational he was finding it and he knew there was something he really had to do which was ‘The Camino de Santiago”

 IAIN-300x168

‘The Camino de Santiago also known by the English name  Way of St James is the name of any of the pilgrimage routes, known as pilgrim ways,  to the shrine of the apostle St. James the Great in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain, where tradition has it that the remains of the saint are buried.                                                                                                                                                                                        Many take up this route as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual growth.

In February 2016 Iain gave details of his quest and promised to keep everyone informed by creating a blog on social media and wouldl try to add to it as often as he could he would also paint one picture a day.

Iain did tell his listeners that he had trouble writing a shopping list and as for drawing his only experience was the “Art” classes he had recently been attending as an interesting topic to talk to his listeners about.

IAIN-DREAM-3-224x300

The seriousness of the quest became very apparent when Iain took to weighing items of clothing on his programme as every single item he would take had to be weighed and be part of a calculated total weight he would carry over 500 miles.

CELTIC CONNECTIONS 25TH ANNIVERSARY

celt conn logo

Glasgow’s annual folk, roots and world music festival, Celtic Connections celebrates Celtic music and its connections to cultures across the globe. From 19 January – 5 February 2017?, 2,100 musicians from around the world will descend on Glasgow and bring the city to life for 18 days of concerts, ceilidhs, talks, art exhibitions, workshops, and free events.
Celtic Connections is programmed by Artistic Director (and founding member of Celtic supergroup Capercaillie) Donald Shaw, and features more than 300 events across multiple genres of music.

The festival is renowned for its strong spirit of collaboration, bringing together one-off line-ups for very special one night only collaborative shows. The camaraderie between musicians continues into the wee small hours at the late-night Festival Club – home of legendary musical collaborations and spontaneous sessions.

“There are situations that you’ll see where people are playing that you’ll never see again, or if you do, it’s because it worked here first.”  Donald Shaw, Artistic Director

The festival has broadened its reach and in 2012 brought a taste of Celtic Connections to the Isle of Skye as part of the Year of Scotland’s Islands, as well as visiting Chicago as part of Year of Creative Scotland to programme various musical performances throughout the Ryder Cup, including the Opening and Closing ceremonies along with a number of other hospitality events.

In 2014, with the support of Homecoming Scotland, the festival staged a special one-off collaboration in the SSE Hydro, an exciting new large scale venue in Glasgow.  This concert was part of the busiest weekend ever for Celtic Connections in which 25,000 music fans attended performances in the space of 48 hours.?  The festival also programmed a number of outdoor performances for Culture 2014 – the spectaular cultural celebrations surrounding Glasgow 2014.

In 2015 the festival won the Art and Culture Award at the Inspiring City Awards ceremony organised by the Herald and Glasgow Chamber of Commerce in association with People Make Glasgow.  The awards were created to celebrate the people and organisations that make Glasgow great.

ROYAL NATIONAL MOD & WORLD OF GAEL MOURN LOSS OF JOHN MACLEOD

John_Macleod

Chaill sinn sàr Ghàidheal gu h-obann Diardaoin an 4 latha den Fhaoilleach agus ‘s e buile uamhasach a th’ ann am bàs Iain MhicLeòid aig 66 bliadhna a dh’aois, agus bi ionndrainn mhòr air a chuid dìchill agus dealas ann an saoghal na Gàidhlig.

Ach ‘s ann dhan dlùth theaghlach a th’ air am fàgail a tha ar prìomh smaointinn agus co-fhaireachadh an toiseach is a bhanntrach Cairistiona, a mhac Calum, agus a nighean Màiri is a cèile Kevin, agus peathraichean Iain is an cuid theaghlaichean uile, a’ feuchainn ri cothachadh ris a chall dhuilich seo nam measg. Tha sinn a’ guidhe neart agus furtachd dhaibh.

_________________________

We lost a true Gael very suddenly on Thursday 4th January, and the death of John MacLeod, at just 66 years of age, is an enormous blow and his diligence and commitment to the Gaelic language and culture will be greatly missed.

However our first thoughts and condolences are with the close family which is left behind and where his widow Christine, son Calum, daughter Mairi and her husband Kevin, and John’s sisters and all their families, must attempt to adjust to this tragic loss in their midst. We wish them strength and solace.

Celtic Music Radio presenter, Mike Ritchie, has come out top of a leading music website’s 2017 readers’ poll.

The Mike Ritchie On Sunday Show has been voted the Best Radio Show in a vote run by the influential Americana-UK website.

Mike, a runner-up to BBC legend Bob Harris in this category twelve months ago, has been announced as this year’s winner by website editor, Mark Whitfield, who said:

“I’m delighted that Mike’s Celtic Music Radio programme has been voted best radio show by Americana UK readers this year.

“He’s a fantastic ambassador for Americana in the UK and along with Bob Harris probably does more for the genre than anyone else on air. 

“He’ll often play not just established names but up and coming acts who might struggle to get exposure elsewhere. Well done to Mike.”

Mike’s show goes out live every Sunday between 4 and 6 pm, and features a mix of Americana, alt.country, roots, bluegrass and singer/songwriters.

cmr-dail-logo-300x1151

Chair of charity-status, Glasgow-based, Celtic Music Radio 95FM’s board of directors, Alex Jenkins, said: “It’s a special moment when a community-based station run by volunteers gets recognition in this manner.

“It’s a great accolade for Mike. For one of our presenters to win an award through a public vote is a real achievement, especially when a broadcasting giant such as Bob Harris is in the mix.

“All of us at the station know how much Mike loves the music he plays and the hard work he puts in to each and every show.

“He includes brand new music as well as personal favourites and he’s keen to support new acts, with many from Scotland. As a result, more and more people are listening in.

“All of us at Celtic Music Radio are absolutely delighted by this result and the recognition Mike’s win gives us.”

Mike said: “I am unbelievably pleased for Celtic Music Radio and totally taken aback to learn that so many people like my show.

“I love producing and presenting it, so a huge thanks to all the Americana-uk readers who voted for me and to all who listen in regularly for two hours on Sunday afternoons for their warmth and genuine encouragement.

“I am really grateful to all the talented bands and singer/songwriters plus the music label promo teams who suggest such terrific, new music for me to play.

“My fellow volunteers at the station are just brilliant – it’s been fun and they have helped me endlessly and enormously over the past four years.

“Finally, no-one is better than Whispering Bob – who’s won the award many times – least of all me. He is a brilliant broadcaster, a legend who has been at the forefront of radio music for so long and I’m a big fan.

“While I’m a newcomer by comparison, I’m chuffed to be an award-winning broadcaster, like him now.”

TRANSPORT MINISTER HUMZA YOUSAF MSP SENDS MESSAGE TO DCR LISTENERS

HumzaYousafMSP20110507

As you may have  heard, the Transport Minister Humza Yousaf MSP has made a statement on the future of the Gourock-Dunoon ferry service

The current service is to be extended until the end of next year

Plus, the tender process for a passenger and vehicle ferry service has been “unpaused”

scottish_parliament_debating_chamber_2-300x1681

CHARLES-FLETCHER1

Transport Minister Humza Yousaf told our Parliamentary commentator Charles Fletcher  from Caledonia Media’s “The Week in Holyrood”:

“This ensures there is certainty for the future. Unpausing is the only realistic way to secure the passenger-vehicle service and letting that tender run its course.”

The summary :

This is an interim report it will be followed by a final report in the spring 2018.

The current contract for Dunoon Gourock will be extended to December 2018

The application of teckal doctrine will be explored to be applied if possible to the passenger element. It says there could be a return of a vehicle carrying vessel
