  1. I think this article will bring mixed reactions, interesting to hear your views: RED HOT RABBIE ; Butler's in the buff as bad-boy Burns in sizzling new movie By TOBY McDONALD DARING Gerard Butler will bare all in a sensational film about Robert Burns.The film's director, Vadim Jean, admitted 40-year-old Butler is set to thrill fans because the film will explore our bard's raunchy reputation. "Gerard and I are both totally committed to the film," said Jean. "There's plenty of sex and nude scenes in it. "He was a notorious rake of his time. We are not whitewashing Burns by any means. "He was a complicated character and to do justice to his story is not a simple thing." Fellow Scots Brian Cox and John Hannah are lined up to appear, although a female lead has yet to be cast as Jean Armour, the poet's great love. The pounds 5million movie will be shot on location in Ayrshire and Edinburgh. Most of the budget, which includes investment from Scottish Screen, is already in place. The remainder will be raised by signing up 250 "subscribers". Vadim Jean sprang to fame as the director of cult classic Leon the Pig Farmer and went on to work with Ewan McGregor in the 2006 film, Scenes of a Sexual Nature. Butler's next film to be is The Bounty Hunter, where he stars opposite Aniston. He is due to begin filming Coriolanus, with Fiennes, this spring in SUNDAY EMAIL sundaymail.co.uk © 2010 Sunday Mail; Glasgow (UK). Provided by ProQuest LLC.

  3. BERWICKSHIRE NEWS: Feature by reporter Simon Duke (simonduke@tweeddalepress.co.uk) http://www.berwickshire-news.co.uk/news/Sh...laim.5978326.jp After becoming famous locally across 2009 for her ‘People and Songs of the Sea’ project, there was an unexpected start to 2010 for Shona McMillan when she received a call from America on Hogmanay to say her compilation album had just scooped a top international award. The CD was just one part of Shona’s multi-media project which also saw her tour Scotland with an exhibition of photographs of the country’s close knit fishing communities. ‘People and Songs of the Sea’ originally started as a small poignant tribute to Shona’s mum Jean who passed away in 2006. Before Jean died, Shona promised to do 'something' to continue the family’s fishing legacy through a celebration of fishing community heritage. From the Thorburn family of Fisherrow, many of Shona's relatives both past and present, played an active part in the fishing community and served in the Navy during WW2. Shona's great-grandfather Archie and grandfather Billy were Fisherrow Harbour Masters and Archie was one of the fortunate survivors of the great storms of October 14, 1881 when 189 men lost their lives off the East Lothian and Berwickshire coast. Today, one of Shona’s relatives, Alex Thorburn carries on the family's working connections to the sea, as the current Assistant Harbour Master in Eyemouth. The ‘People and Songs of the Sea’ album was released last summer and includes contributions from well known artists such as The Corries, Davey Steele, Cathy Ann MacPhee, Gerry O'Connor and local east coast group Harbour Lights. As well as resonating with people in fishing ports across Scotland, news of the release has spread much further. And now, is making an impact internationally through Liveireland. From studios in Chicago and Dublin, broadcasting across America, Canada, Ireland and all around the world through the internet, Liveireland has named it their Compendium Album of the Year. Liveireland DJ Bill Margeson decided it best to warn Shona of the breaking news ahead of a series of programmes throughout January playing to over 1 million listeners a month across the world. Snowed in on Hogmanay, Shona was at home to receive the trans-Atlantic call. She said: “Hearing an unfamiliar voice I assumed they had the wrong number. When he said he was from Liveireland, the station with the most Celtic music listeners in the world and said I had won, at first I couldn’t understand. He went on to explain “Your People and Songs of the Sea album, we've awarded you Liveireland’s Compendium Album of the Year!†To say it was all a tremendous shock is an understatement.†Just as the news that she was an award-winner was sinking in, some days later, he called again. “When I picked up the phone he asked was I near a computer and told me to get listening quick as he had to go. I didn’t put the phone down and kept listening and it dawned on me he was broadcasting live and they were talking all about the fishing communities here. “In complete shock, thankfully, I managed to recover myself sufficiently to record at least part of the show on an old recorder. “But then, I had the idea to do a link to the broadcast via my Facebook page. In my excitement that was difficult but fortunately, my on-line friends realised what I was trying to do and posted the live link so everyone could hear. “As the programme broadcast, over that hour, I received 270 incoming e-mails from people listening all around the world and wanting to pass on their congratulations - it took me hours to get through them all.†Explaining just why ‘People and Songs of the Sea’- which the station dubbed “a masterpiece from Scotlandâ€- beat off competition from other releases to win ‘Compendium Album of the Year,' Liveireland talked listeners through some of the 21 tracks, and one in particular merited a special mention. That track was ‘Will Your Anchor Hold’ where Shona had brought together 100 local fisher folk to record at Cockenzie and Port Seton's Church of Scotland in March last year, featuring the local voices of representatives from east coast fishing communities. Among these was Johnny Johnston, former Eyemouth Harbour Master, George Power, former Superintendent of Eyemouth Fishermen’s Mission, Alasdair Hutton, Convenor of Scottish Borders Council and Alex Thorburn. Shona said: "Hearing that song being played from Chicago was amazing. It was very emotional to hear them talk about the people I had detailed in the album's accompanying photo and story booklet. For Fisherrow, Port Seton and Eyemouth to be named and to hear back our local fishing history being broadcast to me from America - it was an incredible experience! “And, I had especially wanted to bring the Eyemouth people in to my recording - in tribute to the huge number of fishermen lost in the Fishing Disaster. It is amazing, not just to have lifted the profile of Eyemouth's historic loss at home in Scotland but now - people around the world are learning about Eyemouth and Scotland's rich fishing heritage.†Since the programme went out on Liveireland, Shona has been contacted by people across the world, including a Thorburn whose family left Fisherrow 50 years ago to build a new life in Canada and a family from Dunbar who settled in America. Her new found fame has even put her in contact with an ambassador from Canada and many other useful contacts, some of these people having upwards of 6,000 fans each on Facebook. And, all of this excitement came as the ‘People and Songs of the Sea’ exhibition was drawing to a close in the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther, at the end of its tour of 14 venues along the Firth of Forth. Shona had thought that the end of the tour and Homecoming 2009 would be the beginning of a wind down for her project. However, as 2010 gets underway, people around the world are talking on the internet about her project. Indeed, Shona has received invites to take the ‘People and Songs of the Sea’ exhibition to Ireland, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Plus, in recognition of all her hard work with the project and in her promotion of Scottish culture, Shona has just been installed as an Honorary Member of an International Robert Burns Club celebrating all things Scottish. Shona added: “People have asked me if any TV or film companies have been in touch with me and in fact they have. A Scottish team contacted me at the end of 2009 and an American/Canadian group has just expressed their interest so, watch this space! “The funniest thing is, with it being New Year, people being away and all the snow we've been having, I haven’t yet been able to tell everyone who I invited in to the project and the album' award is not just my success. “My original tribute to mum and local fisher folk has grown to be of value to the people of the sea from all around the world and I want to share this success with everyone!†For more info see: Shona's People & Songs of the Sea Facebook group and Myspace sites on: http://www.myspace.com/shona_m_mcmillan and http://www.myspace.com/fisherfolkuk To hear Award programme repeats visit: http:///www.liveireland.com and to buy the album: http://www.greentrax.com To hear my first Radio interview about my project, please visit Celtic Music Radio link: http://www.canstream.co.uk/celticmusic/ind...Week&page=4 Hugs Lady Alex
  4. A statue of Robert the Bruce has taken its place at a Scottish town hall following a 130-year delay. A plinth was erected above the main entrance when the prominent building was constructed on Annan's High Street in the 19th Century. However, because of financial problems, the statue was never commissioned. A local committee started fundraising two years ago and a bronze image of Bruce, Lord of Annandale, has finally been put in place in the town. A special dedication service will also be staged on Friday. A total of £40,000 was raised to help complete the statue which weighs more than 250kg (39st 5lb) and stands about 2m (6ft 6in) high. It looks absolutely stunning and captures just what we were looking for in terms of Robert the Bruce as a nation builder Roderick McCallum Bruce committee secretary Committee secretary Roderick McCallum said it was important to recognise the role the 14th Century king had played in local history. "The Bruces became Lords of Annandale having been gifted this land by the king, basically, I think, to help to pacify the natives," he said. Their first castle was also built in Annan near to where the town hall now stands. Mr McCallum added: "The Bruces, as Lords of Annandale, were an important part of our history." He said that finally putting the statue in place would "correct the deficit" from more than a century ago. Artist Andrew Brown, originally from Port William, said the work presented a number of challenges. Roderick McCallum, right, and Andrew Brown inspect the statue Roderick McCallum, right, and Andrew Brown inspect the statue "One of the difficulties was judging the finished height of the bronze because he was made on ground level and yet he's being displayed 30ft up," he said. "It was an unknown quantity what he was actually going to look like in situ." Another issue was deciding exactly how the statue should look. Mr Brown said: "They have got his skull and there are some nasty, nasty marks on his skull which tell the tale of all the battles he fought in. "But apart from that we don't have any images of Robert the Bruce. "It was a case of deciding what age I wanted to sculpt him at - as a mature man - and then getting the details of the costume right." Mr McCallum said that the artist had managed to meet the committee's requirements. He said: "It looks absolutely stunning and captures just what we were looking for in terms of Robert the Bruce as a nation builder." http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/scotlan...and/8454863.stm

  6. Here is some more info on our amazing Burns Benefit and as well Rose and I had the great pleasure to meet Andrew Boswell from Mob Films while we were in London: The Burns Benefit Concert in Glasgow July 28, 2009 was a huge success and we had a full house and many are asking us when we will be doing our next benefit event as many want to sign up for it again and hope we make this a yearly event. Here is a few links to look at for some of the performances: Some videos are coming in from our artists of parts of their wonderful performances at Oran Mor, we know you will enjoy them as much as we did, just fantastic all round. Paul Stirling Taylor The Skunnered http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2okoi-d5aPg More of the wonderful performance by Paul Stirling Taylor with Danoosha: Gari Glaysher and Keith King with their fun version of Funiculli Funiculla from Burns Benefit Concert. Updated version of 'Nostalgia' with Jose Maria Porto Fayos http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnQrrbJuN24...re=channel_page End of finale line up: As you now well know Rosemarie and I love to connect like minded people and to promote projects for others and we have put up some info about Stone Of Destiny on our RT Burns Group at Facebook: Hi RT Clan, Have any of you seen the wonderful film 'The Stone of Destiny' by The Mob Film Co? The Mob Film Co are behind the film 'Burns' which we are supporting here and hoping will be made soon, starring Gerard Butler. http://www.mobfilm.com/ Synopsis: Ian Hamilton a lawyer and the protagonist, is very angry at what he sees as the political and economic subjugation of Scotland by England, and sad that Scots are somewhat ashamed to be Scottish (symbolised by the description of Scotland as "North Britain" in much material of the time) so he decides to perform a symbolic act to put heart into the marginalised Scottish nationalist movement. He creates a daring scheme with a friend to liberate the Stone of Scone (a.k.a. the Stone of Scone) back from Westminister Abbey in London, where it had resided for centuries following English military victories over the Scots in the Middle Ages. They both research the Abbey and create their scheme, but once his friend realized that Ian was actually serious about liberating the stone, he backed out. So Ian decided he would liberate the stone by himself, but before he left, he went to see the head of the university (a prominent campaigner for Scottish Nationalism, played by Robert Carlyle) to ask for funds for basic necessities. He provided, and later, at a party, referred Ian to Kay Matheson, a girl with strong Nationalist ideas, would help him retrieve the stone. After a variety of rather comic mischances, the group retrieve the stone from Westminster Abbey and return it to Scotland. After repairing damage, they return it to the authorities (having achieved their political aims) and are arrested and charged, but not prosecuted, on charges relating to the case. The final narration on screen points out that though the Stone is now in Scotland, it is only 'on loan' and will return to Westminster for the next Coronation of a British monarch.

  11. Information On Some Of Our Burns Benefit Concert Performers Here is a little bit about some of the wonderful performers for our Burns Benefit Concert. All artists are Honorary Members of RT Burns and are generously appearing for free. All monies raised go to the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum and Yorkhill Sick Childrens Hospital. This will be a unique and wonderful concert and we are RT Burns are proud we could do something for this special 250th Anniversary year, to remember for years to come. The Skunnered: The Skunnered are in their fourth year of performing original and traditional songs around the West of Scotland. Their song "Dig" was released on East Renfrewshire's Identity album, and their music played on Celtic Music Radio, Pulse FM, Two Lochs Radio, etc. "Good Morning Glasgow Town" has had over 200,000 Internet hits and is proving very popular both at gigs and with exiles! Mike Ogletree: Reviving Burns Ina Reggae StyleShare It has been 27 years since he penned and performed the drum score for their breakthrough album New Gold Dream, and 25 since the halcyon days of the Perth Pop Anthem - Feels Like Heaven, but on July 28th Simple Minds and Fiction Factory drummer Mike Ogletree will step out from his drum kit to the front-of-stage, at the Oran Mor in Glasgow to be precise, where he will play guitar and sing the words and songs of Robert Burns, acoustic/reggae style. "I've always been a singer song-writer," says Mike, "at age 13 I had a guitar and a drum kit but my hero was Jimi Hendrix. It's very hard to form a band when all your friends want to be guitar gods, so, out of necessity, and having what was described as "natural rhythm", I easily, if reluctantly, embraced drums as my 2nd, soon to be 1st, instrument." Famous for his tenure with Simple Minds in '82 and Fiction Factory in '83/84 Mike went on to spend 9 years as a session musician in Italy before going to Los Angeles in 1993 to become a sound engineer. Then, in 2006 he moved to New York where he has combined all his talents to arrange perform and produce an inventive CD of Robert Burns music done funky reggae style entitled "The Kilmarnock Edition". http://cdbaby.com/cd/rbmo "I grew up singing Burns at school and discovering places around my home town of Kilmarnock where he visited friends, or went for a drink, even the site of the print shop where his first edition was printed. So, it was a natural choice to revisit his life and work as a source of inspiration when starting my CD." Not only did Mike revisit the Bard's works he also went on to fuse the Scottish folk rhythms and melodies of tunes like A Man's A Man and Scots Wha Hae with afro-reggae rhythms and instruments, as well as composing original music for and performing poems like Man Was Made To Mourn and To A Mouse. "The romantic/spiritual musings, the pragmatic wisdom, the rebellious humanitarian outrage and the subtle beauty and eloquence of Burns works have all earned him a place with the great literary and philosophical giants of history," says Mike. "Yet, his songs are sing-able to a child, plus people of all ages enjoy singing along with him him, which is where I am going and what I am doing with my acoustic/reggae versions of his classics; simple and sing-able." Mike's mission is to bring the music and immortal message of Robert Burns into the homes and hearts of whoever is within earshot of his playing. A unique blend of Robet Burns songs and words with acoustic/reggae/folk music, sung as they were originally written, you can see and hear Mike perform them live and unplugged at the Burns Benefit concert on the 28th of July at the Oran Mor in Glasgow. http://www.oran-mor.co.uk/show_whatson.php?id=545 Gari Glaysher: Gari has just sung his first major concert at the indigO2 at the O2 arena and his first recital at St Paul’s Cathedral. The DVD of the O2 concert is set for release later this year. Gari was on ITV’s “This Morning” singing “Somewhere” from West Side Story earlier this year. Also he has just been in the studio to record his debut album “Serenata” which will be released on the 26th June. He has just returned from two sell out concerts in Florence and is singing at Groombridge Place and Hever Castle in June and July. Keith James King Our compere for the evening, Keith James King is a successful character actor and was for many years a stand up comedian playing the club and cabaret circuits up and down the country. He recently appeared in productions of 'The Bouncers' and 'Feelgood' receiving great reviews. Chris Tait: Christopher Tait is Scotland's leading Robert Burns Impersonator and the offical Rabbie of Homecoming 2009. His unique renditions have been applauded throughout the world from Singapore and Moscow to New York and Dundee. Paul Stirling Taylor: Paul Stirling Taylor is more akin to being behind the scenes these last few years. Many of you here will have already heard his music, even though you may not know it. TV sets around the world regularly play his music, and a generation ago he swapped his 60000-strong live crowd performances for a career in film and television. But tonight he has come back out into the limelight to share with us a sample from his private collection of compositions which have never been performed in public before. ... Eilidh Grant Born in 1982 to North-East and West of Scotland parents. Eilidh’s family has for generations been musically active and she has inherited her parents and grandparents love of music. She started singing from an early age and it was at school that she began to perform on stage and in competitions. Her dad took Eilidh and her brothers to many performance events, particularly folk festivals and with her family’s north-east roots and passion for traditional music it was not long before Eilidh fell in love with traditional Scottish songs. Along-side singing, Eilidh has also appeared and acted in many musicals and stage shows. When she was 17 Eilidh started to develop her own style and in the summer of 2003 Eilidh joined Angus Lyon, Ruaridh Campbell and Stevie Lawrence. However, Eilidh’s current line up of flute, guitar and cello along with some stunning harmonies has been met with great enthusiasm. Eilidh loves to sing Scottish traditional songs - and is especially fond of those of Robert Burns, but her feel for and interpretation of lyrics shows when she switches to a more contemporary style. At the beginning of 2004 Eilidh won a Danny Kyle Award at the Celtic Connections festival in Scotland and since then has had the honour of performing at many different festivals and clubs across the UK and Ireland.

  12. Robert Burns and Bairns, Two Worthy Causes, One Worthy Group Today at 01:09 Robert Burns and Bairns Two Worthy Causes One Worthy Group With less than four weeks to go things are really hotting up for the dedicated group of International Burnsians organizing the Burns Benefit Concert at The Oran Mor Venue in Glasgow. At the end of the night on July 28th co-beneficiaries, The Yorkhill Children's Foundation and the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum will each receive a share of all raffle and ticket sales which are £12 each. Performers at the benefit, all for no personal fee, include the official "Robert Burns" of Homecoming 2009, Impersonator Chris Tait, musician Mike Ogletree from Simple Minds, west coast wonder-band The Skunnered whose "Good Morning Glasgow Town" has had over 200,000 web-hits, Glasgow's very own Eilidh Grant, spinto tenor Gari Glaysher and composers/musicians Kevin Walsh and Paul Stirling Taylor. Compere Keith James King. "We are so excited to be able to raise funds for such worthy causes in the name of Robert Burns." said Rosemarie Rounce-Rigou, one of the organizers. "With such a talented cast of world-class performers we expect a high turn-out and healthy cheques for Yorkhill Children's Hospital and The Burns Birthplace Museum." Yorkhill Children’s Foundation, whose aims are to provide the ‘extra’ services and pieces of equipment that make a child's stay in hospital that little bit easier, has grown steadily since its inception in 2001, raising £319,000 that year to £2.5 million in 2008-2009. "Donations such as this one are the vital contributions that help us to continue and develop our work," said a Yorkhill spokesperson. "anything that improves the care given to sick children is an investment in all our futures." The National Trust for Scotland has taken the lead in creating the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum with a target to complete the project in 2010. "Burns is central to Scotland's life and culture and is widely regarded as a Scottish icon." said a spokesperson for the National Trust. "We are creating a new world class Robert Burns Birthplace Museum but we still have 3.8 million to raise to meet our target of 21m. This donation will contribute to the preservation of Robert Burns legacy for future generations to come and brings us closer to realising the project on time." So, not only an evening of world-class entertainment but also an investment in the future health of our children and the continued legacy of our national poet. The concert at Oran Mor on July 28th is an opportunity to contribute to two worthy causes, that would doubtless meet with Burns's approval.
