Andrew Polson marries Aileen Suttie

Revival FM station director Andrew Polson married Aileen Suttie at Burnside-Blairbeth Church of Scotland, Burnside, Rutherglen, on Friday 9 November 2018.

A large attendance at the ceremony was followed by a reception for invited guests at Crossbasket Castle, High Blantyre, Lanarkshire.

Crossbasket’s four-story bridal tower dates back to the 16th century as part of the preceding Mains Castle. The fairy-tale turret room, built on a hill overlooking the Calder River, is served by a sweeping spiral stone staircase. A true one-off, it is the ultimate bridal suite for Andrew and Aileen.

Andrew, who is also musical director of the Celebration Choir and Christmas Celebration presentations, received over 121 ‘Likes’ on his FB page and also 47 ‘congratulation’ messages from friends.

From everyone at 100.8 Revival FM: “Congratulations to Andrew and Aileen and wish them a happy and healthy life together.”

Picture show Andrew and Aileen with Best Man John Polson, Andrew’s brother plus Bridemaids outside Burnside-Blairbeth Church after the wedding ceremony on Friday afternoon.

Andrew J. Newall guests on Celtic Fusion

Andrew J. Newall guests on Celtic Fusion

On this week’s Celtic Fusion on 100.8 Revival FM, Bob McWilliam has Lanarkshire singer-songwriter Andrew J. Newall as a guest talking about his newly released CD album ‘Reflections from an Airport.’

Andrew writes on the album notes: “Life rarely turns out how you imagined it would be. In a second, your plans and dreams can change. 

When my son was killed in a road accident, all that was important to me changed.  Work and career almost immediately became irrelevant.  My friends suggested keeping busy would help.  It does, but what kept me busy was not what I would have expected. 

Almost overnight, songs and words began to flow from me.  Maybe shock triggers something in your brain. I know that I cannot explain it.  This album was my means of keeping busy.  I guess I have you to thank for that, Paul.”

‘Andy’ Newall (right) pictured with Bob at Revival FM.

This is an album for busy people who have earned the right to take a moment to stop and let the world drift by. It’s for people who deserve ‘me time’. So indulge and treat yourself to some time away from the pressures that life may throw at you.

The album has songs that will make you smile, make you laugh, make you cry and make you think. Drawn from life’s experiences, each song tells a story and paints a picture we can all relate too. It touches on basic human truths we all share in common…..like love won and lost in all its guises.

Andrew, who is well known in the London and Bristol folk scene, recently moved to Lanarkshire. His compositions reflect the breathtaking beauty of the Hebrides of Scotland. The Isle of Barra has a special place in his heart, having spent what feels like a life time travelling the globe, it is not surprising his music derive ideas, style and tastes from a broad diverse range of sources.

With help from some of the best musicians in the country such as Graeme Duffin (of Wet Wet Wet fame), produced and mastered by Sandy Jones at the Foundry Music Lab in Motherwell, it’s an album of such quality you will want to listen to it over and over again.

Celtic Fusion, Tuesday 23 October 8.00-10.00pm; repeated Saturday 27 October 5.00-7.00pm and Catch Up anytime.
