Happy New Year to you all!

We hope Santa was good to you and yours and that the bills dropping through the post are thinner than yer average Freckfest waistline.

We’d like to take this opportunity to say a great big thanks for supporting Freckfest last year.

Whether you attended all our shows or just the one, whether you commented on our Facebook page or read our Irvine Herald column, whether you quietly gaves us a thumbs up at some point over the year, your support has enabled us to continue into 2015. 

No doubt you’ll all have resolutions. Eat healthier? Take more exercise? Cut down on the booze?

Fitter, happier, more productive,” to paraphrase Radiohead.

They’re all empty promises to yourself, and you know it! Sure, you start with good intentions. Polish of the last of the Christmas cake. Down the dregs of the last bottle hiding at the back of the cupboard. “That’s it...ah’m aff it!” You might go so far as getting the Davina DVD out of the shrink-wrap. You might even catch yourself playing it, Lycra-d up and pummeling an invisible punch bag in the middle of the living room while everyone else is out, thinking about that box of Roses you hid from yourself 2 weeks ago. By February you’ll probably be off the wagon and telling yourself it’s just a wee slip up.

Here’s one resolution that’s easy to keep – go and see live music played at least once a month.

We’ll be running our regular Freckfest Fridays each month in the HAC. At the moment we’re still finalising the acts to be confirmed. But we have other events coming up that promise to be magic.
