As the eyes of the design world land on the V&A and Dundee, the pride and passion that the people of Tayside and Fife have for the Tay area is being reflected in a five week exhibition opening at the Tatha Gallery in Newport.
Lord Charles Bruce gives Michael Alexander a tour of Fife's Broomhall House - ancestral home of the Bruce clan which has been opened up to high-end guests for the first time - and explains why politics continue influencing the famous Scottish dynasty.
Martin Carr - guitarist and song writer with 1990's indie rock band The Boo Radleys - tells Michael Alexander why he won’t be singing the band’s best known track ‘Wake Up Boo’ when he performs an acoustic set in Kirkcaldy.
Inspiration from the landscape is at the heart of an exhibition being held at the Tatha Gallery in Newport from this weekend featuring the work of gallery co-owner Helen Glassford and Edinburgh artists Kate Downie and Paul Furneaux.
In an interview ahead of gigs in Leven and Dundee, John Power, the frontman of 1990s Britpop band Cast, tells Michael Alexander about his ‘ageless’ songs, why he ‘can’t wait’ for Jeremy Corbyn to get into power – and why Liverpool FC need to ‘win the Champions League Final for Dundee United’!
