Light of Day Scotland

Jesse Malin, Joe Durso, Maeve O'Boyle

FRIDAY 29TH NOVEMBER 2013

Doors 7.00pm

£13.50/£10.00

The Light of Day Scotland charity concert takes place on Friday, November 29 at Oran Mor in Glasgow and features nine acts, including four from the USA.

All are performing for free.

On the bill are Jesse Malin, Guy Davis, Joe D’Urso and Rob Dye – all from the New York and New Jersey areas – along with home-based talent such as Maeve O’Boyle, Jim Dead, Jack Law, Adam Smith and Billy Crawford.

Staged to raise funds for research into neurological diseases, including Parkinson’s and MS, all money raised from the gig goes direct to charities, Revive MS and Funding Neuro.

• Jesse Malin – who has duetted with Springsteen live and on record – has a great reputation as a live artiste and has two sell-out gigs in Glasgow under his belt. Ryan Adams produced his first album, “The Fine Art of Self Destruction.” His self-produced, second album from 2004, “The Heat” received a five-star review from Uncut magazine. He is finalising work on a solo album due out next year.

• Guy Davis, whose fans include Jackson Brown, is a musician, composer, actor, director, and writer and a bluesman trough and through with the blues permeating every corner of his creativity. His latest album, “Legacy” was picked as one of the Best CDs of the Year by National Public Radio (NPR) – and the lead track on it, “Uncle Tom’s Dead” was chosen as one of the Best Songs of the Year, which, ironically, can’t be played on air. The only other artist on both those lists was Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys fame.
• Joe D’Urso, on the Board of Directors for The Light of Day Foundation internationally, is widely praised for making music with passion and for a purpose to help others. His music is rootsy, introspective and rocking. Live shows have been recorded and traded worldwide, attracting fans in 24 countries and many of whom travel hundreds of miles to see him.

• Rob Dye’s music incorporates elements of rock, old school country, Stax-influenced R&B, gospel and more while remaining true to the essence of each style. He logs over 150 shows a year, whether in a duo or with a band playing covers along the Jersey Shore or touring the country and overseas for the Light Of Day Foundation.
The charity takes its name “Light Of Day” from the title of a Springsteen song and a film starring Parkinson’s sufferer, Michael J Fox. The charity was established in 2000 to raise money for the disease after Bob Benjamin, a well-known music figure in the New York area was diagnosed with Parkinson’s.

The first event was in the Springsteen home territory of Asbury Park, New Jersey where it now runs for four or five days each year with satellite tours in Europe and Canada.
