Studio Guest Alan Falconer Mon 3rd June 7-8pm on ScotSpeak with Janice Ross
‘Man about town’, Alan Falconer, is a fabulous jazz musician who plays exquisitely. He is a singer, photographer, writer and poet. Every second Friday of the month he plays with the Traditional Music Group, as part of the life-long learning sessions at Strathclyde University. He also plays in a jazz quartet (sometimes bigger depending on who turns up) at Carlton Recording Studios, in Carlton Place, twice a week. He can be found wandering the city streets taking photographs of street performers which hang in his marvellous online gallery. A ‘West End’ boy, Alan first started playing around the age of 13 and has never looked back. In this week’s edition he takes the listeners on a whirl wind tour of his musical influences, plays some and reads his favourite composition.
