I’m just back from Celtic Colours International Festival in Canada, where I had an absolute blast playing with an exciting UHI/Fèisean nan Gaidheal collaboration called Fuaran nan Eilean, which featured Anna-Wendy Stevenson, Simon Bradley and members of Eabhal along with a squad (school? pod? murder?) of other fantastic musicians. Alongside is a picture of the amazing colours on the trees out the car window.
I was also super excited to make a video with INYAL, which was also a collaboration between top engineer Mattie Foulds and stunning videographer Somhairle MacDonald – both really worth checking out! You can see it here. We’ll also be releasing another video very soon!
Speaking of videos, at the start of the month, I worked with top videographer Gus Stirrat to make a video for the first track on my album, Ale is Dear, in the stunning setting of Govanhill Baths. I’m totally delighted with the result and will be releasing it very soon.
Finally, I’m preparing for a three-week tour of Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland and Denmark with ace singer-songwriter Simon Kempston – you can check out where exactly in the gigs tab on this website.
