Here’s my cleck! I’ve had a mental wee time of it recently and I’m looking forward to the start of my 3rd year at Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. From playing at festivals the length of the UK from Orkney Folk Festivalto Sark, we’ve had a busy few months!
In August I had a brilliant sell-out Edinburgh Festival Fringe show at The Acoustic Music Centre and spent a lovely weekend teaching at Nomad Beat – community music school in the borders ahead of Innerleithen Music Festival. Ross Miller, Charlie Stewart, Luc McNally and myself had a brilliant sell-out Linlithgow Folk Festival show titled “Songs and Reels at The Rose” on the 7th September, then headed west to Inveraray for Best of the West festival. Our Edinburgh Folk Club slot was well attended and was the first gig at the newly re-opened Pleasance.
This weekend I head to Poland with the Polish Association Aberdeen and the Melting Pot to play at Nakielsis Cantat festival in Naklo. I best be practicing my Polish! Next weekend, Luc McNally and I have been added to the Tarland Food & Music Festival lineup where we shall support Mairearad and Anna then on the 23rd September, Ross Miller Music Luc McNally and I will play at Wauchope Hall in Yetholm.
