Ten Guitars for Michael English - Scottish dates
"Ten Guitars" became the anthem of 1960s New Zealand Maories who had suffered the dislocation of moving from back-country marae to the Big Smoke. Singing it at parties, they could briefly experience their lost sense of belonging. And they added their "Maori strum" to the English tune.
Michael is on tour at the end of September with dates in Falkirk (28th) and Dunfermline (29th) as well as Arbroath and Langholm.
Irish stars on the road

Millport Festival goes international
The addition of a huge 3,000 capacity concert marquee that will host international country stars such as Mark Chesnutt, The Shires, Adley Stump, David Ray, Morgan Frazier and Ashton Lane will add to the fun and excitement of the adjacent core festival within the grounds of the Garrison House and local venues.
The grand parade, line-dancing, shootout competitions, funfair, hot dog eating competitions… there is lots going on over the whole weekend.

And there's a chance to win an exclusive Cumbrae guitar. The festival logo features a guitar in the shape of the island, and one will be won by someone buying a ticket for the main headlining concerts by The Shires or Mark Chesnutt. Another will be auctioned off in aid off Millport Youth organisations.
