Re: Closure of Forum

Absolutely agree Davey. Crunchie has done a grand job and I'm sorry to see the Forum go. One thing I will miss is the ability to search for old discussions: Facebook is too "now" and leaves no real permanent record.

Au revoir Davey - we may yet meet up at a gig somewhere, some day! :)

Re: Calum on Chris Evans show

For those who aren't able to receive the BBC, some kind soul has put the whole interview on You Tube! :D

Re: The story (Limited Collectors Box Set)

Apparently this is something produced by the Band's German label (not Ridge!) which is why it doesn't appear in the RR online shop. The "AAA" is not new, but a compilation of 6 live tracks from previous official Fan Club AAA releases - which most fans will have anyway. Currently advertised...

Re: Tour Support

Re: The Story (Limited Premium Edition)

I don't know about that LP CD edition but with regard to the "Collectors Box Set" advertised on Amazon here, Iain Bayne has said on Facebook that: "...that's being released by our German label. It is expensive but its a limited edition. The print is in English. As its not a Ridge rele...

Re: Radio interview - listen again link

I hope Dave doesn't mind me sharing his topic but Brian also recorded a one-to-one telephone interview with Fiona Elcoat for her Big Boots & Celtic Roots show (broadcast on 16th January). If you missed the live show and/or would like to hear this interview again, it is now available on Lionheart...

Re: 3 more songs from the The story

Having already played 3 tracks last Saturday, Fiona Elcoat will be playing 3 more from the new album as one of the "3-in-a-row"s on the Big Boots and Celtic Roots Show live on Lionheart Radio between 7:00 and 10:00pm UK time this Saturday (9th January). I believe the plan is to play differ...

Re: New members - what made you join the Stamping Ground?

Eh? They do Newcastle on practically every tour Lennie13 - and 'The Story' is no exception: The Sage, Gateshead on 17th February!

Quite often it's the City Hall but unless you are really pedantic about a short stroll over a bridge then The Sage is close enough to Newcastle for anyone! :)

I didn't get the bit about the business man in the posh car either! Nor me :? - I was going to watch it again in a day or so and see if it makes more sense to my befuddled brain! I 'get' the man pawning his love's locket then remembering, regretting, and redeeming it, but it's a younger man in the ...

Re: Runrig Tattoos

Forget Google Translate - it only has Irish Gaelic anyway so is no use at all!

There are a few Gaelic speakers on here - or if you're on Facebook you could try asking in one of the Runrig fans groups there. Good luck! :)
