Summer in Scotland

On the whole it’s been a pretty good Summer here in the North-East of Scotland although the last few weeks of August were pretty wet and had a real Autumnal feel to them.

Atomic Doric and the Strathspey King’s 170th birthday

July was a busy month for me with Woodend Barn’s “Atomic Doric” project with several performances and a fair few tunes composed. At last count I think I was up to about 20 traditional tunes from slow airs to strathspeys and from jigs to reels, with the music inspired by everything from landscape to history […]

Glamis castle and Portsoy folk festival

As well as ongoing work on the Atomic Doric project for Woodend Barn art centre in Banchory throughout the month of May I’d a couple of notable bookings in recent weeks. After an extremely successful Glamis Gathering last year which drew crowds of around 25,000 visitors it was decided to run the event again but […]
