Hector Gilchrist & Friends

A special 80th birthday concert from a special Ram regular – and, as it turned out, the Ram Club’s final concert

Hector is an adroit and enthusiastic interpreter of songs old and new and for this concert, which marks his 80th birthday, he’ll be joined on stage by musical buddies from across the years – Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer, Moira Craig, Carol Anderson, Bob Wood and, of course, Sue Graves and Steve Poole of Soiree. Hector’s first experience of singing on a stage came at the age of 10, thanks to a headmaster who insisted any child with a voice should be heard. And what a voice it turned out to be. From his frequent floor spots, regulars at our Ram Club concerts will be familiar with Hector’s mellow, seasoned tones, his soft Scottish accent, and lilting, conversational singing style.
