DK plays the Sunday Session – Bar Brig, Leith, 17th November

Another Edinburgh gig coming up, when I return to Bar Brig on Leith Walk for an afternoon set on Sunday 17th November. When I played there a couple of months ago it was a lovely, intimate gig so really looking forward to this one. I’ll be on about 3.30pm and entry is free.

Live at the Bailie, Stockbridge – Friday 4th October 2010

acoustic_tronThe series of autumn gigs continues this Friday (4th October) when I play at The Bailie in Stockbridge, Edinburgh. It’s about 15 years since I last played there so it’ll be nice to return!

I’ll be on about 11pm and entry is free.

Edinburgh Fringe – thank you!

I had a great time playing alongside my old friend and collaborator Alan R Davison, and it was lovely to air some songs we hadn’t played together for years, as well as some new ones which we’ve never attempted before.

Who knows, there could be more duo gigs in the offing – watch this space…
