Gerry Rafferty To Be Celebrated At Nine Day Festival

.
(Classic Rock) The career of Gerry Rafferty will be celebrated at a nine-day festival in his home town, marking what would have been his 67th birthday. The singer-songwriter, best known for his 1978 hit single Baker Street, died in 2011 after struggling with alcoholism for many years.

Rafferty left a legacy of material including work with Stealers Wheel, The Humblebums - his folk duo with comedian Billy Connolly - and his iconic solo albums City To City and Night Owl.

Now it has been confirmed that that legacy will be marked during Bring It All Home, a series of concerts in Paisley featuring his family, friends and colleagues.

It's been organised by collaborator Rab Noakes and Rafferty's daughter Martha and is set to feature Midge Ure, Hamish Stuart, Eddi Reader, Barbara Dickson and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, who'll perform a set of specially arranged tracks at the centrepiece concert on April 16. more on this story
