Rab Noakes Celtic Connections Review
Rab Noakes will be playing "BACKSTAGE" at the Green Hotel, Kinross on Saturday 5th Feb. Recent Reviews from Celtic Connections are listed below. For all Mundell Music GIGs click HERE.
Amid all the guests and big band numbers one man stood out, however, Scotland's own Rab Noakes, whose voice and acoustic
guitar telling of Mississippi and its infamous one regret - staying there
a day too long - caught the atmosphere of the song and the
mood of the night to perfection.
What, you may ask, about stand-outs? Rab Noakes, less familiar to a younger generation, in particular shined with his solo rendition of Mississippi, which showcased his own finger-picking skills and that of its songwriter’s lyrical self-reflection.
