Live for the first time since 1967 '19 Rupert Street' by Sandy Denny and Alex Campbell. Sandy Denny and Alex Campbell recorded an album in August 1967 at the Scottish folk singers home, 19 Rupert street, Glasgow. However, this album didn't exist until June 2011, after David Cousins was introduced to it by Alex Campbell cousin who found the recordings at Patsy Campbell's house after she died, as a cassette, and therefore was un-usable for release. During the weekend of Glasgow's Open House festival, for the first time since 1967, these songs will be played as a live music event and result in a re-recorded live album from the original home of 19 Rupert street. The audience can listen at a distance from the window in the street, where the live music will be played from amplifier, or are invited into the home of the album to meet, watch or listen to the musicians whilst the recording session is live.

The musicians and singers participating in this work are non-professional and untrained, emphasising an anti elitist value to the work relying on the the strong concept and appropriation of an event and its site within a home in Glasgow. The audience are welcome to sign up for an original addition of the new album, with uniquely designed covering sleeve, which will be sent out to their addresses after the recording of the album.

Opening times:

Saturday 29th April - 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Sunday 30th April - 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM
