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.

On 7th October, Luc and I will both be heading down to Wisdom Lodge near Biggar to take part in the semi-finals of the BBC Radio ScotlandYoung Traditional Musician of the Year 2018. Tickets are available here:…/amp

There’s 31 days to help fund “Remedium”, a project linking Polish and Scots culture, sending 30 Aberdonian musicians to Nakielsis Cantat festival in Poland. There’s £4000 to raise! The visiting singers and musicians will perform over three days for a public of over 700 people, and these events will be covered by Polish national television, as well as TVP3 in Bydgoszcz, and Radio Nakło. But desperately need a little help to cover travel costs. Help fund the project by Polish Association Aberdeen.
