Last Wednesday night, was the HIGH SPIRITS album launch in Stereo Bar, Glasgow. HIGH SPIRITS is the new highly anticipated album from G&T which was released in September. Tina and I were very excited about the launch as we had a big night planned with some very talented support acts and special guest musicians. I even got to work earlier in the week, making some G&T themed bunting to hang around the venue! We also arranged for our graphic designer/photographer Somhairle to film our performance for some promo videos.
For the 5/8 set, on which I added some extra string parts and effects on the recording, we had Innes and Tom on fiddles on the night. It was great to have them on stage with us, and they sounded marvellous! In our final set (Shetlag) Tina danced a step near the end which added to the high energy of the gig.
After our performance, the G&T band got back up on the stage for an encore, beginning with some tunes from our EP; Old Sweet and The Velvet Jacket. It was lovely to play this set again after so long, and for them to be accompanied on bodhrán, guitar and bass. Innes and Mec Lir then joined us on the stage for a song and a few more tunes to end the night properly. Tina even danced another step!
We are looking forward to doing another couple of launches in our home towns of Cavan (Ireland) and Clitheroe (Lancashire) with some shows in between. More details to be announced soon.
