Edinburgh Fringe – thank you!

67738829_10157176387410499_9096940161144455168_nThanks to everyone who came along to the A Songwriters’ Circle presents… show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe on the 2nd August. 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…

Graeme Easton’s Playlist Live – Wed 12th June

GraemeEaston_Logo_Large.jpgI’m delighted to be appearing at a very special live recording of Graeme Easton’s Playlist podcast, at Edinburgh’s Traverse Theatre on Wednesday 12th June.

Graeme’s special guests for the live recording of the podcast – which features famous figures from the world of sport choosing their favourite songs – are Stuart Cosgrove and Tam Cowan. Stuart and Tam are presenters of BBC Radio Scotland’s long-running show, Off The Ball, but as we’ll no doubt hear on the night that’s just one shared string to their bows.

Stu&TamGraphic_16.9.jpgAs for me, I’ll be there to recreate some of their song choices live and offer some – ahem – “insightful” notes about the songs.

There are still some tickets available – see the link below:

Martin Guitar Night

A lot of fun at The Mercat in Edinburgh last Wednesday, as Martin Guitars hosted their Takeover Open night. A great singalong…complete with unusual facial expressions from yours truly.

 

Live

A couple of live dates coming up this week as I head to London to play The Green Note, Camden, on Monday 22nd April, and then play a short set at The Mercat in Edinburgh on Wed 24th.

The London date sees me opening for Adam Holmes and the Embers (tickets from www.greennote.co.uk) while the Edinburgh set is part of a Martin Guitars showcase.

There are also details of a special show at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe coming soon, so stay tuned…
