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!
It’s been a wee while since I posted some sort of video, so I have put together a wee simple video for my song “In The Glen”. It’s something I had planned to do when I was working on my album but never got round to it! Thankfully I came across the footage I took with my phone during a walk up Alva Glen and put it together with some photos and the track from my album “Travels”.
So here it is, I hope you enjoy it and if you, do please share it with your friends!
