Falkirk singer Calum offers a live musical alternative to the same old Saturday night telly line-up.

Over a week into the coronavirus restrictions and people are itching to get out and listen to some live sounds instead of staring at Ant and Dec and the pre-recorded warblers on The Voice.

Thankfully Falkirk singer songwirter Calum Baird has never been shy to use his music to take a stand against those privileged few who seek to oppress the common people – and this time its the people who create the Saturday night telly schedules.

While you can’t get out to a pub to listen to take in a gig, Calum will be providing the next best thing, streaming a live set on Facebook from 8pm this Saturday.

The singer said: “I’ll be playing a set of my own songs and some folk, roots and world covers for you all to sit back and enjoy.”

Now based in Edinburgh, Calum is usually out gigging most weekends and has played shows all over the UK and Europe in the last few years.

The travelling troubadour may have had his wings clipped by the current global pandemic restrictions, but being shut in his home has not stopped his desire to entertain others with his trusty guitar, harmonica and thought provoking, socially conscientious songs.

Those who decide to kick terrestrial telly into touch for an hour or so and tune in to Calum on Facebook can expect top tunes aplenty, including the performer's latest single Modern Man and material from his album No Right Turn.
