The first release from experimental label ‘Folk U’ is as special as its introducing label having been taken from an upcoming Stage Musical premiering at the Citizens Theatre in Glasgow October 31st 2012 and Stratford East Theatre,London in 2013. The ‘Glasgow Girls’ musical is a stunning theatrical play depicting the true story of a group of immigrants living in Glasgow who with their Glasgow comrades defied the system by starting a bitter war to save their friend from deportation with her family and change laws which had brought them and their fellow refugees so much trouble. Dissecting deep rooted British immigration issues and offering an insight into the life of a refugee living indefinitely in Scotland’s industrial city of Glasgow, the stage play musical devised by Pachamama Theatre Group Producer and multi-award winner ‘Cora Bissett’, is a strong heart quencher which presents beautifully and musically a tale celebrating the triumph of the human soul over all that attempts to bind it.

 

With script writer David Greig weaving the tale together the musical includes songs written by Scottish producer, vocalist and actress Patricia Panther, creation wizard Cora Bissett, John Kielty, musical director Hilary Brooks and MC Soom T, offering an eclectic array of styles to perfectly suit the courageous mood. Glasgow Girls, the stage musical is produced by the National Theatre of Scotland, Theatre Royal Stratford East, Citizens Theatre, Pachamama Productions, Richard Jordan Productions Ltd in association with Merrigong Theatre Company (Australia). This special 7” is very limited to 300 copies so get your piece of stage musical history right here from Folk U Records.
