There’s an Accord fundraiser on tonight at The Bungalow. It is sold out and looks to be a good money spinner for the Paisley hospice. On the bill is The Fogarty’s with special guests: Iain Bell , Robert Wishart, Aine Currie, Corran MacArthur and Gill De Groote who are all going to perform for this worthy cause. The Fogarty’s love performing and raising money for Accord Hospice.
