The Pearlfishers – Glad Cafe

So… you wait for ages, then two come at once…

 

The Pearlfishers at Glad Cafe Glasgow

The amazing eight day run (Pearlies, Gaga, Pearlies) culminated on Saturday 25 October with The Pearlfishers at Glasgow’s Glad cafe.
Billed as an acoustic show, what it really meant was a “no bass and drums” format, but with a string section, which format embraced the performance of a number of songs which haven’t been played for some time – “I Was a Cowboy,” “Night Breeze” and “Sugar Mountain Babies,” which I believe was last played by The Pearlfishers on 3 July 1999. At East Kilbride Arts Centre. Must get out more.
The Glad Cafe in Pollokshaws Road is a beautiful bar/cafe/venue and well worth the trip. Obviously, The Pearlies were great and it was possibly their greatest show since the previous Saturday. A lot of it is on You Tube, I’ve added a bit below (Barry, sorry I didn’t see you there…)
