2 Shades play a Burns Night in Worsthorne

Being asked to play a Burns Night it’s inevitable that you are going to be asked to play a Scottish song!

So we performed the 6 minute version of the Proclaimers’ song 500 miles as arranged for the film “Sunshine on Leith”.

We’d already had some backing vocalists for  “Things” (Bobby Darin) and “Rocking Good Way” (Brook Benton) so with more able backing from members of the local choir it formed part of the finale which of course ended with “Auld Lang Syne”.

We also included a tribute to Phil Everly with a couple of songs from the Everly Brothers; one of our regular set “Crying in the Rain” and the Bryan Ferry version of “The Price of Love” which the brothers co-wrote when they were trying to compete with the British music invasion.
