It’s been a fairly busy couple of weeks for me, but it’s been great fun. I’ve did a couple of local gigs including my first outdoor gig during Menstrie’s Jubilee celebrations and also my first appearance at Castle Rock in Stirling. Both gigs went really well and it was great to see people singing and clapping along as always. I’m sitting here writing my set list for this weekend’s Elphin Drift down in the lovely village of Husthwaite, Yorkshire and thought I would send you this wee email to announce a very special gig.
Folk On The Boat
I’ve known about this for a while now, but I can finally reveal that I have been invited to perform at the second Folk On The Boat fundraiser for Celtic Music Radio this August! I unfortunately missed the first one back in September, but absolutely delighted to get the chance to perform this year. Folk On The Boat will take place on the beautiful paddle steamer “Maid Of The Loch” moored in Balloch on the bonny bonny banks of Loch Lomond on Friday 10th August. There will be many other acts performing on the night, but I will provide the full lineup and also details on how you can get a ticket in a future email, as all the arrangements are currently being finalised. The first Folk On The Boat event was a huge success and sold out. This years event is expected to sell out quickly. As you know, I have had the pleasure to perform live on Celtic Music Radio a number of times now, and I feel honoured that they have invited me along to their prestigious fundraising event. Gonna be a great night!
