The album launch night at The Glad Cafe was a huge success and was great fun. I would like to thank all that came along and helped out on the night and a big thank you to Rosanne Reid who played some astonishingly beautiful songs - (watch out for her new album) and my bandmates Jim McDermott and Nico Bruce, all of whom played a 'blinder' on the night. I may have to consider putting on another band show later in the year.

Seven Cold Curses

As the the last few days of 2015 drained away into the dark December night, I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to perform and be filmed within an iconic Glasgow building. This former Royal Mail sorting office in Cubie Street provided the ideal opportunity for playing a few songs in an atmospheric environment and cool December light, filmed by Glasgow's Beaten Track Productions. If anyone is looking for a fantastic space for their business - check out www.cubiestreet.com if it is not occupied soon I i think it will become a fantastic gig venue. More songs to follow...

Smash Gamble

Just in case anyone missed it, the youtube video to Lorna Reid's Smash Gamble is below.  I was extremely please to be asked to join Lorna Reid during her set for STV Edinburgh. We recorded 4 songs in a very hot and stuffy studio and it was great to meet the team behind the cameras. Not all songs have been broadcast yet, so in the meantime here is the video for Smash Gamble.

The Star Folk Club

Due to the success of the Bringing It On Home songwriters in the round show were are now taking the show on the road. Ok the road is a lot closer to home than the last one but it's still a road we haven't done a gig on before and I suppose we are bringing it on home... is 19th August @ The Star Folk Club , Admiral Bar , Waterloo Street, Glasgow.

Check out the Star Folk Club - it's a great club with world class acts every week! www.starfolkclub.com
