Scotland-born Craig Ferguson, the late night host, is on a mission. He wants the U.S. to appreciate the music of Roddy Hart & The Lonesome Fire. More often than not, Ferguson’s show doesn’t include a musical guest. That’s why his show is not included in the column on the left, where the musical guests appearing on the other late night shows are identified. But on February 17, Roddy Hart & The Lonesome Fire made an appearance.
We recorded the show, although we didn’t know anything about Roddy Hart & The Lonesome Fire. After watching the recording the next day, we gained an appreciation for the band and the musical tastes of Craig Ferguson. Well, Ferguson invited the band to appear on all five shows next week (February 24-28). Set the recorders!
Roddy Hart & The Lonesome Fire is based in Glasgow, Scotland. The members of the band are Roddy Hart (vocals, guitars, piano), Scott Clark (bass, vocals), Scott Mackay (drums), John Martin (guitars, vocals), Geoff Martyn (piano, organ, vocals), and Gordon Turner (guitars, keys, vocals).
While in Los Angeles, the band performed at The Hotel Café. The song “In My Dreams I’m Always Losing” was recorded and uploaded to Soundcloud. At least for now, it is being offered as a free download.
