Gerry Creen, The Dram, Glasgow, April, 2012

After hearing Gerry Creen perform on Ciaran Dorris' Sunday Session, Celtic Music Radio, Jim and I went along the next night to Gerry's gig at The Dram. On a very wet and drab night in Glasgow, he brightened things up considerably, bringing his own brand of relaxed and enjoyable entertainment to town.

His affable approach, fine guitar playing and warm melodic voice drew the audience in from the word go and Gerry had us captivated. He sang a mixture of his own songs and some familiar covers, songs that were happy and some that were sad. He had great connection with the audience in the intimate venue, and we appreciated being told about the background to his songs, including the sad story of the baby 'Marina Jane'.

We also enjoyed hearing his stories about his hometown Belfast and his trips to Nashville. His play on Randy Newman's 'Short People' was both clever and humorous and I particularly enjoyed 'Lucky Star', which Gerry explained was 'not about unrequited love but about unfullfilled dreams'. I was also delighted to hear one of my favourites, 'Star of the County Down'.

It was a great night out and lovely to see Ally and Paul, soon to tie the knot, Celtic Music Radio were well represented with John Collings and Cathie, Ciaran Dorris plus fervent folk fan Lucillia Weir. There were quite a few musicians in the audience and Gerry had no trouble getting folk to join in with some fascinating harmonies.

Hope it won't be too long before we see Gerry Creen back in Glasgow.
