On June 14th McGregor was delighted to welcome Julian Redpath to the village as a fundraiser for the Poetry Festival. Jenny and Martyn Johnson kindly hosted the event at their beautiful home, and made delicious soup to complement the evening.
Julian is an up and coming young guitarist, and is busy promoting his first album, Heavenly Light. His tour started in Nottingham Road, and ends in a week’s time in Julian’s home town, Jo’burg. Accompanied by a cellist, Clare, Julian’s mastery of the guitar and hauntingly beautiful lyrics entertained the happy group of music fans.
His work is fresh and inspiring and was a treat for all of us privileged enough to attend. As the second Live Music in McGregor Concert, Julian was an unqualified success, and we look forward to the next musician to journey to our favourite village.
