Once again Mr Scott raises a bottle to see out the old year and ring in the new and that means it’s time for Scots Whay Hae!’s New Year’s Eve treat. It’s an alternative to the Hogmanay telly, so if there’s little you fancy on the box, this might be more up your street.
There’s music, comedy, documentary and drama all involving some of our favourite folk, including Phil Kay, Tom Weir, Peter Capaldi, Robbie Coltrane, John Byrne, Craig Armstrong, Liz Fraser and finishing with some live Roddy Frame. Heroes one and all. That’s quite a lot to get through, so without further ado….
I’m going to finish off with one of my personal highlights of the year, Roddy playing Killermont Street, on Killermont Street, and leading a rather moving singalong:
2014 has been a historic year of incredible highs and dreadful lows, but as always it included great music, books and film, some of which we managed to cover. I’m not sure quite how 2015 is going to live up to the last 12 months, but whatever happens we’ll be there reviewing, commenting, and talking to some of those who are going to shape it.
From everyone involved with Scots Whay Hae!, Happy New Year and we’ll see you on the other side…
