The Sweetest Growl opens at Oran Mor on Monday 7 October, directed by Lesley Hart and featuring Hilary Lyon.
In the 1950’s, Gorbals-born Mary McGowan was the sensational singer with cult Scottish jazz band The Clyde Valley Stompers and was reckoned by Louis Armstrong to have one of the best voices in the business, even headlining The Cavern Club the night The Beatles made their debut! However, at the height of her fame, The Girl with the Sweetest Growl gave it all up to become a Glasgow housewife. But did she have any regrets? And what prompted her return in middle-age for a triumphant reunion concert in her beloved native city?
