Clanadonia launch RyanAir’s new flight from Glasgow to Dublin

We’ve had a very busy year this year and some amazing and interesting events have resulted.  Not least today’s performance at Glasgow Airport to celebrate the launch of RyanAir’s inaugral flight from Glasgow Airport To Dublin.  Clanadonia were brought in to perform as people boarded the plane and, despite the “classic” Scottish weather, they went down a storm!

Many thanks to Glasgow Airport and RyanAir and on a purely selfish note, we’re delighted that we can now catch a RyanAir flight to Dublin direct from Glasgow Airport – it’s going to make our Dublin trips far easier from here on in!

Take a look at some of the press pics here

A scottish welcome at the Commonwealth village

After performing at the opening ceremony of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, the guys were delighted to be asked back to entertain the athletes as they arrived the Commonwealth Village.  Needless to say they were very well received and turned out to be an alternative (and some might say rather loud) warmup session for the athletic teams!

Check some out some of the photos from the day here

Clanadonia proud to have kicked off the Commonwealth Games celebrations

Clanadonia were thrilled to be asked to welcome athletes, and the rest of the world, to the Commonwealth Games last night. The performance went down a storm with the 40,000 strong crowd at Celtic Park with the band receiving a humbling standing ovation following their performance.

We’re proud to have been part of such a momentous occasion and proud that it all happened in our home city of Glasgow!

Wishing all the athletes all the very best of luck over the coming 10 days.

BAND @ CELTIC PARK 2014 CWG CEREMONY.

 

Clanadonia to play in the trophy at the Scottish Cup Final on Saturday.

Aside from being only the 5th time in 20 years that no member of the old firm is in attendance, another good reason to keep an eye on the Scottish Cup final on Saturday would be to witness the guys playing the trophy up the tunnel to start the opening ceremony. The game between St Johnstone and Dundee United will be played at Celtic Park as Hampden is undergoing a major refit to be ready for the Commonwealth Games, the band will also be playing outside on the day before the game so plenty of photo ops there.

Clanadonia set to welcome the guests at the 18th MOBO awards this weekend.

Mobo 18

As I’m sure a fair few of you will know, the 18th annual MOBO awards will be taking place in Glasgow on at the newly minted SSE Hydro  this Saturday.

The Music Of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards was established in 1996 by Kanya King and Andy Ruffell to recognise and celebrate artists who create ‘black’ or ‘urban’ music.  In its 18 years, it has only been held outside on London in 2009, 2011 and now this year, all of these ceremonies have been held in Glasgow. You are most welcome nice people.

Clanadonia rock the boat for Johnnie Walker.

This week the guys played at a rather swanky corporate event for the whisky Johnnie Walker who have been on the high seas for a few weeks, (all info here), hobnobbing with a few Scottish rugby players along the way too. The yacht had berthed at the weekend and the organisers have been entertaining guests away from the madness of the festival down in Leith.
