Re: According to Classic Rock, "The Story" isn't the end

Well that's a great bit of news. After all they are artists and performers. And they sure seem to love what they do and what they create. I would think they would not just stop like that - "well we're tired, time to go" It's good to see artists trying new things and stretching themselves w...

Re: Edinburgh Castle Tickets (standing)

I wouldn't miss it for anything. The new album played live. It is $80.00 for the ticket with international postage, but tickets here in LA to see name bands can go for $200. So Runrig always seems a bargain to me. Plus its a great excuse to take a vacation in Scotland. And it is a long way from Los ...

Re: New album speculation

Say Owen, I totally agree with you. FB is nice for those who follow it and all. But the Band has an official website and that seems to me would be the place to post any news. The last entry was Feb 27 about Chris Harley's death. They may not have anything to say about the new album. that's fine, I c...

Re: New album speculation

I know for a fact that it doesn't take much skill to post on one's website. I have just learned to do this for one that my Club has. And I am no techno wizard. But it does take time. I am very annoyed that the Band doesn't post on their website - or even here- to announce things. We are the Fans - o...

Re: Feedback on new software/style etc

Thanks Crunchie for all of your hard work. It was a bit of a surprise to see the new pages. It has an updated, clean and more colorful look now, if a bit confusing because its new. But one can get used to anything with time. I like the way it looks and it seems a bit more useful, not that i had figu...

Re: your first time

I will never forget it. December 5th and 6th, 2008, Friday and Saturday nights at the Barras. I had been listening to CDs all summer, having discovered the Band's music in 2007 on my first trip to Scotland. I was trolling the website and saw the tour dates and thought - "wow - I'd love to retur...

Re: I have a question...

Good question, Owen. It is one I sure can't answer. But here's my 2 cents: I loved their music from my first hearing in 2007 on my first trip to Scotland. It is so unique and reaches into the soul. I think a lot of the songs are very spiritual, but not in a religious sense. So I don't think that has...

Re: Website..."Latest News"

My guess is that there is no news to share, Agate. And probably won't be any for quite a while. I'd have to agree with Herzchen - we have to be patient What would be the news, anyway? New album debut? we know that is not going to be coming for some time. New tour dates announced? They don't seem to ...

Wow, this is the liveliest discussion here I've seen for a while. Though I must admit to not spending much time here myself. It is a little flat and the few discussions I've seen lately, while very interesting, haven't really been things I felt I could add to. It seems that many fans have moved to F...

Re: Camping aids

Data1964, this is a bit different. It's not just a receptacle. The liquid turns to a solid within a few seconds of coming into contact with the crystals at the bottom of the bag. You then seal it up (when full - it takes nearly a litre!) and dispose of it in an ordinary bin. No smells or anything. ...

It is a bit quiet for sure. Nothing like a few years ago when there were games and contests, the drool threads, photos, hot topics, and lots of discussions.

Re: Celtic Summer Night - Hessentag Bensheim

So does that mean they have no dates scheduled for winter in Scotland/UK ? If so that's so sad. It doesn't seem fair that they leave UK out of the summer/fall schedule and then don't do the winter. Maybe??? I was looking forward to the Barras this December, not having been able to manage any Denmark...

Well, congratulations are certainly in order for such an amazing weight loss - pounds or stones. It doesn't matter - it's gone..
