Broken Chanter (David MacGregor to his mother) will be bringing an array of very talented musicians to the Tolbooth to perform his brand new, award-winning album ‘Catastrophe Hits’, and tracks from his critically acclaimed 2019 eponymous debut LP (A stunning, stately debut – The Skinny) for the good people of Stirling and her Shire.
Both records showcase MacGregor’s ear for melody and dexterity at tugging heart-strings (one of the elements which resonates most clearly throughout is MacGregor’s continuing ability with a shining pop chorus – The Scotsman) and provide a tonic for the grim times in which we find ourselves.
MacGregor spent 2007-2017 as the principal songwriter of Scottish Alt-Pop darlings Kid Canaveral. Their Debut LP Shouting at Wildlife was described by The Herald as “a Scottish pop classic that should be mandatory in every record collection in the country”, with follow-up Now That You Are a Dancer being nominated for the Scottish Album of the Year Award in 2014.
