Nordkapp Kayak for Sale – £450.00

For further information please contact:  01505 612687

 

Friday 5th October 7:30

 Now that the nights are "fair drawin in" and the coaching has ended for the season 
 Kayakers from the club are organising an informal get together at RWSABC in the form 
 of a curry night on Friday 6th October at 7:30.

 Recent curry nights have been held at RWSABC rather than at a restaurant as Kayakers 
 feel that they should support the club by spending their hard earned cash over the 
 bar.  They have also managed to raise some money from "tips" to the organisers which 
 resulted in a £40 donation to RNLI last year.

 If you have not been contacted by Frankie or Andy already then please contact them 
 asap or contact the club.

AT THE BOAT CLUB

SATURDAY 15TH SEPTEMBER 7.30 for 8.00

Duncan originally came to the fore in 1982, when the big-selling Scottish singer at the time, Valerie Dunbar, released a single of ‘Always Argyll’, written by Duncan and a friend, Jimmy Jamieson, from Tighnabruaich.  The song went on to be covered by over thirty artists in Scotland, Ireland, and Australia.  One of the groups which covered the song was the hugely popular folk band The Clydesiders.

When their guitarist decided to call it a day in 1982, Duncan stepped in, beginning an eighteen year career with the band, during which he recorded seven albums and several singles with them, and appeared in countless concerts and TV programmes around the UK and Europe.

With his band, including long time collaborator Cy Jack, Lindisfarne drummer Ray Laidlaw, and renowned fiddler Chris Stout, Duncan had support slots with Donnie Munro, Martin Carthy and Midge Ure, and a magical duet at Glasgow’s Atheneum Theatre with legendary Pogues frontman Shane McGowan, sharing vocals on ‘Loch lomond’ at a tribute concert for the great Scottish singer-songwriter Matt Mcginn.

More recently, with a 3 piece, he did a live Celtic Connections concert on Iain Anderson’s influential radio show.

Duncan and his band are appearing at the Royal West on Saturday 15th. September. Tickets are only £8 per person, and are available at the Club.

This will be a great night.   Don’t miss it!
