What a week it’s been! On Saturday, the trio featuring Luc Daniel McNally and Charlie Grey won the Molloy Award at The Trip to Birmingham TradFest then a quick nip up to Glasgow where I was honoured to speak at Dr Robbie Shepherd MBE’s ceremony and sing as part of Royal Conservatoire of Scotland St Andrews day pre-record concert. A busy week at university, filming with Graeme MacDonald, recording bits onto my album tomorrow with Charlie Grey tomorrow and then MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards on Saturday! And BREATHE!
