The customers of Sammy Dow’s on the Southside of Glasgow got a sneak preview of String Driven’s new album on Friday 24th April. Word of mouth had ensured a packed house and they were treated to gems like Another Night in This Old City written just half a mile away, over 40 years ago. The first set also included classic tracks from the 70’s as well as songs from 2007’s Moments of Truth.
After the break, the boys let loose with the new album which hit the spot with a knowledgable audience. The set closed on curfew time of 11.30pm with Nightclub and Circus, but the reaction prompted management to allow one final number… that old Showstopper, ‘Jack Diamond’. So why choose Sammy Dow’s? Well as Chris explained, when he wrote ‘Another Night’ in Pollokshields all those years ago, it was his local!!
