A night of Common Weal Music and Comedy Common Fest Night! #Commonfest Weâ€™ve been working hard over the last few weeks to finalise the lineup for CommonFest and are very happy to announce that the bill is now complete! The night will be opened by wordsmith Alan Bissett. Our speakers are Common Weal founder Robin McAlpine, the wonderful Elaine C. Smith (a Common Weal Board Member) and the author, artist and all-round great-Scot Alasdair Gray. Comic relief will be provided by the cutting wit of Vladimir McTavish and Lady Albaâ€™s melodic satire. On musical duties for the evening we have up-and-coming Glasgow rockers Suspire, David MacGregor from indie-favourites Kid Canaveral, leading Glasgow rapper Loki and 2013 Scottish Album of the Year winner RM Hubbert. Local artists Katy Christopher, Janie Nicoll, Megan Coyle and Pearl Kinnear will also be there to either display or create work inspired by the â€˜All of Us Firstâ€™ philosophy of Common Weal. But thatâ€™s not all! Weâ€™ll be joined on the night by organisations such as Scottish CND, the Living Rent Campaign and the Scottish Unemployed Workers Network whoâ€™ll be manning a number of information and engagement stalls. Common Weal staff will also be manning a booth to provide further information about who we are and what we do (and they might even have some goodies for sale).
