Rockers Runrig to play farewell concert in Stirling
    2017-September-28  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

VETERAN Scottish rockers Runrig are to stage a farewell concert next year to mark their retirement after 45 years in the music business.

The band was founded on the Isle of Skye in 1973 and enjoyed U.K. chart success with Gaelic songs in the 1990s.

Their song “An Ubhal As Airde” reached No. 18 in the charts in 1995. They have played hundreds of shows across Europe and in New York’s Times Square. The band released their 14th and final studio album, “The Story,” last year.

Their final concert will be held in Stirling’s City Park on Aug. 18, 2018.

Runrig’s members said they felt it was the right time to wind up the band with their farewell gig, which will be titled “The Last Dance.”

Calum Macdonald said: “This has been an enormous and difficult decision for us. But through the machinations of longevity and circumstance, we feel that the timing is now right for a positive and celebratory conclusion.”

The band consists of songwriters Rory and Calum Macdonald, along with Skye guitarist Jones and drummer Iain Bayne from St. Andrews.

Lead vocalist, Nova Scotian Bruce Guthro, joined in 1998 followed by keyboard player Brian Hurren from Falkirk.(SD-Agencies)
