The Celtic Music Radio Album of the Week commencing Saturday 23 July is the new CD from North Sea Gas titled ‘Tak A Dram Afore Ye Go’.
North Sea Gas are Dave Gilfillan, Ronnie MacDonald and Grant Simpson.
Dave Gilfillan says: “I think we have a very good selection of songs for everyone to enjoy. We have rerecorded The Haughs Of Cromdale and Yellow On The Broom due to popular demand together with another 15 songs and altogether that’s 17 tracks swhich is good value! There are no guest artists on ‘Tak A Dram Afore Ye Go’ so only the three band members are playing on it. We did this deliberately to reproduce the live show.”
Thirty plus years on and stronger than ever, one of Scotland’s most popular folk bands with great vocals and tremendous three part harmonies. Guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bouzouki, whistles, bodhrans, banjo and good humour are all part of the entertainment. North Sea Gas have received Gold and Silver disc awards from the Scottish Music Industry Association and regularly have sell out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
