Just before Christmas I was chuffed to be told by Hands Up For Trad that one of my compositions made it into the top tunes of 2015 and included in 'The 2015 Collection' which is a follow on from the great tune book 'The Nineties Collection'
I spent Hogmanay playing at The Queen's Hall in Edinburgh along with my band Heeliegoleerie. We sound checked at 7pm and finished playing at 2am, so a longish night, but good fun. See the photos below.
I'm looking forward to a busy January, a couple of concerts in Glasgow, Saturday 16th as part of Celtic Connections with the Equilibrium Ensemble at the City Halls and Saturday the 23rd at The Sphere with The Eilidhs. I'm working on new material with duo, Eilidh Steel & Mark Neal as we are going to be touring in February and in the summer. See the 'diary' page for more information on all of these - more dates will be added shortly.
I'm also working on recording some new compositions of my own and excited about some interesting collaborations on this and some other projects during the year... more to be revealed over the next coming months.
Here's a recent recording I did of some lovely tunes I learned many year's ago... All the best for 2016!
