Rab Noakes – 7th February 2012

Tuesday 7 February 2012 8.30pm  


Rab Noakes is a force to be reckoned with in the world of music in Scotland and beyond. Highly prolific and of a consistently good standard, Noakes writes melodic songs that seem to have that special quality of being perceived on at least two levels; the self absorbed singer songwriter material that typifies most aspiring songsmiths who started out in the early Seventies, but at the same time great and memorable pop songs.  Lindisfarne recorded his songs “Turn a Deaf Ear” on their first album, Nicely Out of Tune, and “Together Forever” on their second, Fog on the Tyne. Barbara Dickson also recorded “Turn a Deaf Ear” on her album Do Right Woman, on which Noakes also performed.

Noakes also sang backing vocals and played guitar on the first solo album by Gerry Rafferty, Can I Have My Money Back, and became an early member of Stealers Wheel. He was recently featured on the BBC4 series ‘Singer Songwriters at the BBC’ and his love of classic pop song formula be it Everly Brothers or Radiohead results in a glorious mix of live material content.
