Hello all.

I’m just back north, having gone down to play The Bedford in Balham once again. It’s probably my DK - Bedford 8th June 2015favourite of all the venues I’ve played in London as there always seems to be a warm appreciative crowd…which makes a HUGE difference when you’re on stage! The gig was broadcast live on the web and for the next month or so you can watch it – all you have to do is follow the link below and whizz through to about 20mins in to see my first set, and then about 1hr 15 mins in to see my second.

Douglas Kay – live at The Bedford

The London gig followed a jaunt up to Newburgh the week before for  “A Songwriters’ Circle“,  which turned out to be a cracking night, again in front of a lovely audience. The next Circle show is the 9th August in Moffat (alongside Paul Gilbody & Kirsten Adamson) before I play the special  Edinburgh Fringe Songwriters’ Circle on Thursday 13th August (this time alongside Kirsten & Alan R Davison). Tickets are available for that show by clicking the link above.

Hope to see you soon,
Douglas

A Songwriters’ Circle

After a fantastic gig in Wales last week, the next live gig is a unique show at Steeple Arts in Newburgh, Fife on Friday 29th May. Also appearing as part of this concert will be Alan R Davison & Paul Gilbody.

I first produced and played “A Songwriters’ Circle” alongside Carol Laula & Alan Davison at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe. These shows see three songwriters share the stage to play their songs, collaborate on each others’ compositions and talk about some of the inspirations and processes behind their songwriting.

Following the show in Fife, we’ll take A Songwriters’ Circle to Moffat before returning to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August.

Lift – live
