12th October – Raging Twilight

Keen observers of the Irvine Folk Club Guest List would have been expecting Jack Law’s Band on Wednesday 12th October. It should be noted that for reasons unknown as yet, Jack Law’s Band has morphed into Raging Twilight and they will be the guests at the Irvine Club on 12th October.
Raging Twilight describe their music as being ‘woven with soul and laced with blues’. In any case, it is a five-piece band fronted by Jack Law and they play in and around Glasgow and the Central Belt.
Jack Law on vocals plus acoustic, electric and slide guitars as well as mandolin is a singer and songwriter who formed his first band as a pupil at Clydebank High School. He was a founder member of Greenmantle – a superb band of the 1970s who were frequent visitors to Irvine folk Club at The Eg and Marymass Folk Festival. Jack is tremendously proud of his Greenmantle days.
The four other Raging Twilight members are Dougie Harrison on vocals plus acoustic, electric and slide guitars; Jean-Claude (JC) Danti on vocals, bass and acoustic guitar; Duncan Sloan on keyboards and Colin Paterson on drums and percussion. Dougie, JC, Duncan and Colin also play in a variety of other bands including ‘60s Covers bands, a Jazz Guitar duo, Blues bands, a Rolling Stones Tribute band, a Country band and an amateur orchestra! Nothing if not varied!
Jack Law firmly believes that creativity continues to develop as you get older – ie not the prerogative of the young. On Wednesday 12th October at Irvine Folk Club, the audience will get a chance to check out his contention when Raging Twilight are the guests. The Club starts at 8pm in Vineburgh Community Centre in Quarry Road and it’s BYOB.
