A rare video of Scottish folk band “The Clutha” performing at the Partick Folk Festival in Glasgow 2004

A few weeks ago i was contacted by a folk music fan asking about a video I made in 2004 documenting some of the highlights of The Partick Folk Festival.

In that video there is a short clip of The Clutha a ground breaking band from Glasgow who rose to fame in the early 1970s. It turns out that there is very little footage of this band performing and this music fan was very keen to see if there was any more footage. The problem was so much of my archive got ruined in 2012 due to flood damage and I could not remember if that particular reel had survived.

After much rummaging about I discovered some but not all of the reels from this festival and as luck would have it I had two songs of The Clutha saved.

So for any folk music connoisseurs and Scottish Music Historians here is that video re-digitised on YouTube for you to enjoy.

Which I hope you do.

The songs performed here are “Jock Hawk’s Adventures in Glasgow” and
“The Tartan Plaidie”

Spotlight On “The 515 Crew”



Spotlight On “The 515 Crew”

The main highlight of this years Mela festival were those purveyors of Brit -Bollywood style, The 515 Crew.
The band performed a blinding set at Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Bandstand at the free show on Sunday.

Formed in 2009 the 515 Crew are now well established as leaders in the Live Bollywood and alternative British Asian Music scene taking their fusion music all over the UK and the world, in fact are touring the Dominican Republic at the time of writing this article.

With major tours under their belt recently playing alongside household names such as UB40, Billy Ocean, Kool & The Gang, Labyrinth and The Specials.

I&D media – liked their slick sound, cool look and funky attitude [they are the only Asian fusion band we have seen in Kilts, which we are told they wear quite often! ] … so we really had to try capture something of the energy, look and feel of their show as photographs. We also managed to video one song which we hope to introduce to folks not acquainted with their sound and hope they like it as much as we do.
