Celtic Music Radio will be broadcasting ‘live’ from the Inverclyde Folk & Roots Festival at The Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock on Saturday night, 9 November from 7.00pm.
Ross Macfadyen introduces the live sell-out concert which features Scocha – Scottish Folk ‘n’ Roll band! Scocha play original Scottish songs combined with new, dynamic arrangements of Scottish Classics, peppered with banter, fun, and the feel-good factor.
From soft ballads to rousing foot-stomping refrains, Scocha have something for everyone. They are one of the few bands in Scotland whose concerts attract all generations from kids to grannies and everyone in between.
From festival stages to theatres and halls, Scocha have packed them in. Their unique performances, faithful to being traditionally Scottish in style and allied to a vibrant freshness, are real feel-good events. A passionate blend of stirring new material and traditional classics, spiced with up-to-the-moment arrangements, a Scocha performance is never scripted and always original. You might stand or sit – but you won’t sit still !
Supporting band are The Wherries – if The Wherries are the support, then Scocha must have some live show!
Who doesn’t know The Wherries? Their informal, great fun and off-beat style of presenting traditional Scottish folk music appeals to audiences of all ages wherever they’ve played throughout the world. The Wherries unique blend of ‘sing along’ traditional Celtic folk music, Clydeside humour and abundant audience participation has won them friends and fans wherever they have performed.
Live from The Beacon Arts Centre Studio Theatre, Custom House Quay, Greenock – Saturday 9 November from 7.00pm introduced by Ross Macfadyen.
