Glastonbury 89 – I’m Gonna Burn Your Playhouse Down

Glastonbury 89 – I’m Gonna Burn Your Playhouse Down

A year ago in the midst of an exceptional summer schedule of huge live events, The Proclaimers were on The Pyramid Stage making their 7th Glastonbury appearance.

 

Here is one from way back, I’m Gonna Burn Your Playhouse Down recorded live at Glastonbury in 1989 also on The Pyramid Stage.  This was bowing out in style as it was the very last appearance on the Sunshine On Leith world tour, 10 months that had seen 145 concerts in 18 countries.
 
 
 
RIP Colin Somerville

RIP Colin Somerville

We are deeply saddened at Colin’s passing. Always a delight to meet and an incredible passion and knowledge for music.
In his time at Radio Forth, from our debut single onwards, we were always exceptionally grateful for his enthusiasm and support.

Virtual choir performance of Sunshine on Leith

A small amateur dramatics company in South Queensferry, Forth Dimension Musical Productions have been unable to hold their normal springtime concert. Instead, they decided to team up with another local choir Ferry Blend and do their own virtual choir performance of Sunshine on Leith.

 

Well done to everyone involved for this most charming and passionate rendition.

Nevis Living Room Ensemble – I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)

The Nevis Living Room Ensemble project has brought together 160 musicians from 15 countries to perform  ‘I’m Gonna Be’ (500 Miles).

From Australia to Nicaragua via California, India and Kenya and across the UK, they have been joined by people all of ages. From a new learner only on their second week of saxophone lessons, to seasoned orchestral musicians with a couple of rattle shaking babies and a dog for good measure.

During the COVID-19 crisis, Nevis Ensemble will continue their mission to bring music to everyone, everywhere.

Nevis is adding to support our community partners at a time when they are working flat out to provide essential services for some of the most vulnerable in our society.

Please have a look at Refuweegee‘s work to find out how you can help them, be it donations of food or toiletries, or a financial support if you are able.
