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

Thousands of people packed Albert Square in Manchester last night to voice anger over US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK.

TRUMP GO HOME BUS HITS SALFORD

Star date: 13th July 2018

'MANIAC' TRUMP NOT WELCOME HERE

A red open top double decker bus toured Salford this morning covered in slogans reading 'Trump Go Home'. It stopped off at Salford Precinct, Salford Royal Hospital, Langworthy Road and the Civic Centre before heading off to Manchester.

The bus was sponsored by Swinton-based Mary Monson Solicitors, and Mary Monson told the Salford Star that "the idea that he'll come and be feted like a respectable person is appalling". Meanwhile Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, called Donald Trump an "ultra-capitalist maniac".
