Cappuccino Concert with Bob Stewart

From Sheena Wellington :
 
Wighton Heritage Centre, Central Library
Cappuccino Concert with Bob Stewart
Saturday 16th September, 11am (doors open 10.30am)  
Admission £5 (tea/coffee available for small charge)
 
Bob Stewart has been entertaining delighted audiences for over 25 years and plays a variety of Scottish/Celtic and contemporary acoustic music. Bob’s performances are a very lively affair with a mixture of traditional and original material, a driving acoustic guitar sound, bodhran, whistle and mandolin (not all at the same time) and humour!
 
Bob has been a full time musician since 1989 and has played in several bands touring Scotland and Europe before going solo in 2007.  He has appeared on many successful albums over the years and has a new solo album due for release in Summer 2017 (album pre-orders will be available from June).
 
Bob has also performed for the BBC on local and national Radio and TV.  
 
He has worked with many top folk acts including appearing on stage at the Fochabers festival, guesting on bodhran, with the Battle Field Band. During this performance, Bob had to stuff the bodhran with guitar string packaging as the damp atmosphere had slackened the skin! Bob has worked in the studio with Ian McCalman who was a big influence throughout the years as well as Tich Frier, Andy Ramage, The Gaberlunzie, Blackeyed Biddy, Sheena Wellington and too many more to mention. 
 
Bob has appeared with bands and solo at many festivals including, The Edinburgh Fringe, The Orkney Folk Festival, the Coastal Fringe Festival and he had the privilege to perform at the very first Fochabers festival.

Getting things done – Logie Avenue #dundeewestend

Having had complaints that some trees along Logie Avenue are overgrown (one resident indicated they are “almost touching cars as they pass by”), I took this up with the City Council.
 
The council’s Assistant Forestry Officer has responded positively as follows :
 
“I have inspected the trees the length of Logie Ave as requested. 
 
A number of these mature trees do have low canopies obstructing headroom for pedestrians, vehicles, sight lines and grass cutting. 
 
In the coming months I will include the crown lifting and crown balancing of all the offending trees into our mid / late winter work programme.”
