FIX IT AT EAGLE INN

Liam McClair EP Launch
Thursday 15th February  from 7:30pm
The Eagle Inn

Singer songwriter, Liam McClair, is performing a free live show at the Eagle Inn this Thursday to launch his new EP Fix It, with support by Dom Major and Ben Williams. Ian Leslie asks Liam about his songs that are 'full of emotion and class'.

Full details here...


It's real treat to catch a Liam McClair live show. He's a chatty and unpretentious character with a host of songs that are choc-full of emotion and class. Those familiar with his live shows will have been impressed by his soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics. I'd recommend fans of well-crafted songs to listen to Alchemy as an example of a quality singer/songwriter in action.

On Thursday, 15th February, Liam appears at The Eagle Inn in a free show to debut his new EP, Fix It..."It brings together my past three single releases with this fourth single" he explains "As well as Fix It, the tracks are Hunted, We Should Talk and Fame, and it's a mix of songs from when I was performing more with a full band and songs that I play primarily solo."

Liam's set on the night will be in-keeping with the nature of the release and will comprise new and established work... "It's a good mix" he says "Fix It and We Should Talk were recorded last year, with Hunted being recorded in 2016, so it shows how my style has changed and how my recordings may be different over time."

Liam is typically humble when questioned about his footballing prowess. I ask the former Manchester United academy player how close he came to following in his father, Brian McClair's footsteps... "Not very close" he responds "I played as a schoolboy but a couple of injuries in quick succession cut my career short."

It isn't something he need concern himself with; his music career is flourishing and has already seen Liam playing iconic venues, including The Ritz and Old Trafford. He's also played alongside some legendary acts and had a stint supporting the great Ian McCulloch.

"Yeah it was fantastic" he decides "I was really lucky to play those shows and loved the reaction every time. It was nice having to sort of win a crowd round, and hope they liked what I was doing. I think one of my highlights was performing at the Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool supporting Echo and The Bunnymen. It was a venue I passed very regularly as a student and always dreamed of going in, and the first time I did was walking onto the stage to play!"

It looks like Liam McClair has an eventful 2018 lined up, with a single recorded and another EP in the pipeline. Fans can also expect more shows to follow later this year. In the meantime, catch him at The Eagle for an exclusive, live performance free of charge.

Liam McClair EP Launch, with Dom Major and Ben Williams
Thursday 15th February, from 7:30pm
The Eagle Inn
19 Collier Street, M3 7DW

SALFORD COUNCIL NURSERY CLOSURE GOVERNMENT BOMBSHELL

Star date: 20th February 2018

GOVERNMENT REVEALS THAT SALFORD COUNCIL NEVER ASKED FOR FUNDING FLEXIBILITY

Salford City Council recently announced that it was proposing to close all five of its nurseries. And yesterday Children's Lead Member, Lisa Stone, said that it was "a direct result of Government changes, which reduce the use of Dedicated Schools Grant."

However, this afternoon a spokesperson for the Department for Education told the Salford Star that "Any council that had concerns…could apply to the department for increased flexibility" in the Grant's use. They added that "The Department has not received a request from Salford for increased flexibility…" This is bound to increase pressure on the City Mayor to hold off the consultation on the closures.

SALFORD RED DEVILS AUDITOR ‘CASTS DOUBT’ ABOUT ‘COMPANY’S ABILITY TO CONTINUE’

Star date: 19th February 2018

SALFORD REDS ACCOUNTS SHOW ALMOST £9MILLION LIABILITIES

New accounts published for the Salford Red Devils show that the company made losses of over £700,000 last year and that it has net liabilities of almost £9million, including the £1million loan from Salford City Council.

Despite the directors insisting that restructures and changes within the club forecast a 'modest profit', its auditor states that the conditions "indicate the existence of a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt about the company's ability to continue as a going concern".

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE PACK SAVE OUR SALFORD NURSERIES MEETING

Star date: 17th February 2018 

MEETING VOTES TO TAKE ON SALFORD MAYOR IF NURSERY CLOSURE CONSULTATION GOES AHEAD

Despite pleas from Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, and various Labour councillors to work together to save the five Salford Council nurseries threatened with closure, a packed meeting of hundreds of people voted this afternoon to lobby and protest against the Council unless a consultation on the closures is stopped.

"They can't have a consultation to close the nurseries, and ask us to have a joint campaign" said UNISON's Ameen Hadi "The two things can't happen..."
