About A Band: The Herald review

Print

A nice review from Alison Rowat of The Herald newspaper dated 17th February 2011.

"Meet another combo, this time a Scots one, in Jim Hickey’s short but uplifting documentary About a Band (***). The Columcille Ceilidh Band from Edinburgh is mainly made up of musicians with learning difficulties. As Hickey follows them from gig to gig it’s plain that, like every other band, the CCB are in it for the sheer joy of playing and the camaraderie of the road. N/C 18+, Wednesday, 1.30pm, GFT."
