Many of the visitors and contributors to footstompin.com will know, or know of, Kenny Caird.
Kenny was for many years, the driving force behind the New Dawn and Star clubs in Glasgow. Very recently, he announced, with his customary candour, that he was fighting a losing war with cancer.
In an effort to provide some tangible support for Ken’s family, a group of his friends have been very busy over the past couple of weeks organising a Testimonial music event. It’s no exaggeration to say that we have been overwhelmed both by offers of help, and the generosity with which people have responded.
Plans are now sufficiently solid to announce the date, and the line-up.
Here’s the programme for the event.
