I am delighted to have been ask to appear on BBC Radio Scotland’s flagship folk music show “Travelling Folk” this Thursday! I’ll be nipping along to the studio on Thursday night and having a chat with Bruce MacGregor and Vic Galloway about music…they’re even gonna play a track or two from “Travels”!
Listen in on Thursday night on BBC Radio Scotland from 8-10pm on 92-95FM and online at bbc.co.uk/radioscotland. I believe the show will be available on BBC iPlayer for 7 days after the show too.
Hello! Here is yet another video from my set at the recent open mic night at the Kilted Kangaroo in Stirling. This time, it’s Stan Rogers’ brilliant song “Mary Ellen Carter”, one of my favourite songs to sing!
Hello, hope you are well. I took some video footage while I was at the open mic night at the Kilted Kangaroo in Stirling and thought I would share this one with you. This is Richard Thompson’s “1952 Vincent Black Lightning”, a wonderful song about love and motorbikes.
It’s been over a month since my last video, which I apologise for. I’ve been on holiday and trying to catch up with everything, but here is a brand new video of me singing “Travels”. I hope you enjoy it! Please feel free to leave your comments below 🙂
This is the first video in a series of videos I will be putting together to showcase songs I like to perform, including my own songs, traditional songs and folk covers. This first song is a brilliant, popular traditional Scottish song called “The Barnyards O Dalgety” and I first heard it performed by the Old Blind Dogs. I’ve added a wee bit of a rock ‘n’ roll twist to it, so I hope you enjoy it!
Well hello there! It’s been a while, which I apologise for. there hasn’t been much happening with me lately, I’ve been focusing my efforts on learning new songs, writing new songs, doing “back office” stuff etc. However! I am pleased to announce I have two gigs coming up in Glasgow within the next week.
The first of these is on Sunday 28th July when I will be performing at an acoustic night at Glasgow’s Pivo Pivo. I played there before a few years back so will be nice to be back. I’ve not been informed on who the other acts are yet, but I’m sure it will be a great night. The gig starts at 7:30pm and entry is £5 on the door.
The next one is a performance at the launch night of somewhereto_re:store, which is a wonderful project focused on bringing the arts to disused spaces. It has already been a success in other parts of the UK, so I am looking forward to help launch this in Glasgow. This will take place at DNA, 12-16 South Frederick St and begins at 6pm. This gig is free entry and there will also be free drinks on arrival, possibly some nibbles too!
At both of these gigs I will be performing some of my brand new songs, as well as some new trad and cover songs I have been learning recently. Looking forward to gigging in Glasgow again and I hope to see you there!
In other news, proud to say that a great fan and friend of mine, Michael Gille, was flaunting his “Travels” executive producer t-shirt with pride at the Hebridean Celtic Festival last week…Michael, thank you for showing your support!
