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!
Debut Album Update
It’s been almost 2 months since I started my crowdfunding campaign for my debut album through Bloom VC. I am delighted that I have exceeded my target amount, every single penny is greatly appreciate to fund the production of my debut album. The campaign closes at midnight tonight, so this is your last chance to pre-order a signed special edition of my debut album, which will feature different artwork and include an extra bonus song, click here to be taken to my campaign page. This is the only way to get your hands on the special edition CD, so don’t miss out!
That is all for just now, I look forward to performing down in Yorkshire this weekend and will let you know how it goes. I also hope to have more information on the Folk On The Boat gig soon to, so as soon as I have the full details, I will let you know.
