Lauder

 

As part of our Museums Galleries Scotland funded project and to mark the end of our showcase exhibition National Treasure: South Lanarkshire’s Sir Harry Lauder Collection, we are delighted to present Lauder at Low Parks Museum. 

Lauder is a gem of a show about a legendary Scottish entertainer, whose songs are familiar to us all.  Known for songs including I Love a Lassie, Roamin’ in the Gloamin’ and Keep Right on to The End of the Road, by 1911 Harry Lauder had become the highest-paid performer in the world and an international star of music hall, vaudeville and recordings. 

Lauder looks beyond the image to reveal a man of mischief and ingenuity, an entrepreneur and, above all, a philanthropist who raised an epic amount of money for the wounded soldiers of the First World War.  This is the incredible story of one of the world’s first superstars, an original thinker, a man of vision and humour whose real life inspires, more than the larger-than-life characters he created.

‘This is a joyful experience, both to watch and to feel a part of.  MacDougall is a fine tenor and his beautiful diction and impressive acting skills showcase Lauder’s work at its very best.’  Glasgow Theatre Blog

Join us for an evening’s entertainment, celebrating the life of Scotland’s world famous superstar, Sir Harry Lauder. 

Doors open at 6pm. Complimentary drink and nibbles on arrival.

Part of the Young at Heart festival.

Available to book online or by calling The Town House Hamilton on 01698 452299.

Cost: £9.00 (includes complimentary drink and nibbles)

Beth Malcolm (voice and piano) and Heather Cartwright (guitar and voice) are a modern folk-inspired duo. The pair perform their stories with tight harmonies. Together, they deliver traditional songs with fresh eyes. The song-writing explores themes of female friendship, growth and quarter-life crises.

Recently names Scots Singer of the Year 2022, Beth has been screchin’ out Ally Bally Bee since she was old enough to stand on stage. A pivotal moment for Beth was performing at the online Celtic Connections festival during lockdown, which led to her touring Germany in 2022 as part of a Young Trad ensemble. Recently, she has collaborated with Adam Holmes, Lewis McLaughlin and Gaelictronica sensation Niteworks’ with their hit track ‘John Riley’. Beth’s debut album ‘Kissed and Cried’ is due out Spring 2023.

Carlisle-born Heather Cartwright spent many years singing in choirs, participating in school productions, and learning guitar at secondary school. Heather would race home from school, to spend hours playing fingerstyle guitar at home. Happily, she went on to train in Traditional Music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Upon graduating in 2022, she set out on tour with Hannah Rarity for a month-long tour in Austria. During this time, Beth discovered Heather’s playing online, and they have been writing, performing and laughing together ever since.

Heather and Beth are excited to join the Live Music Now Scotland family and share their music to new audiences. The pair are inspired by the notion of oral culture, and giving back to those communities who taught them songs in the first place.
