Well, we’re naturally lost for words as to how to describe January’s musical guest, the effervescent Alan Sorensen … So we’ll let someone else do it! Here’s a recent feature about Alan by CrossRythms.:
“Back in 1982, Glasgow-based singer/songwriter Alan Sorensen released what appeared to be his one and only album – the self-effacingly titled ‘Alan Sorensen’s Greatest Hit’ – having built up a strong following with over 1,000 live appearances to his name. With a back catalogue of well-crafted and accessible songs that promoted the Christian faith, coupled with Alan’s natural ability to connect with a live audience, it seemed that that the scene was set for a long and fruitful musical career.
However, soon after the release of ‘Greatest Hit’, Alan found himself called to become a Church of Scotland minister and, although he has simultaneously forged a successful career in radio broadcasting, music began to take a back seat until – like the master tapes of his debut album – it was finally packed away into a cupboard and forgotten about.
Almost exactly 30 years later, Alan has decided to dust off and re-master those old tapes and rerelease ‘Greatest Hit’ on CD for the first time in an attempt to raise money for the fabric fund of his current charge, Wellpark Mid Kirk in Greenock.”
