The Proclaimers will be performing as an acoustic duo
We sure hope it doesn’t take you “500 Miles” to check tonight’s featured performers, the Scottish duo The Proclaimers. Because if it does, you might miss out a hell of a lot more than their monster hit that introduced the word “haiver” to US audiences (haiver, haver v. To talk fooolishly; n. nonsense, a person who talks nonsense.) In addition to their classic album, Sunshine On Leith (here you can find “500 Miles”), do yourself a solid favor and dig up Born Innocent, the Proclaimers’ totally rocking 2003 release. Whatever Proclaimers album you dig up, you’ll find a mixture of Everly Brothers’-styled ballads, Scottish northern soul, grandly brash UK rock in the latter-day Morrissey vein, and of course, the mighty voices of Charlie and Craig Reid, known as the Proclaimers. Tonight, they’ll be performing as an acoustic duo.
