Fiddle class sessions are back & Fringe news!

Hi folks, hope you’re well.

There’s something about sitting by this quern stone that we found on my Great Grandmother’s croft, and watching it swing. It’s keeping me grounded. It’s also the star of the next show… a literal rock star! Folk will have seen it on stage in all my shows, but now it’s taking centre stage. More about the show in future updates.

I’m keeping business at bay until the summer when things will take off again for a few months. I hope you can join us at some event, somewhere… there will be a few festivals and quite a few shows at the Fringe 2022! More below.

Join us on World Storytelling Day?

Dear folks,

Apart from a couple of trips back South I’m staying up on Lismore for now. The calm and beauty here is in such stark contrast to everything going on. It’s been very touching to hear musicians playing in response to the crisis in the Ukraine and it reminds me of how powerful music is for bringing people together.

There’s a blend of live and online events this month. More below. Hope you can join us.

Here’s the full March update

Auld Lang Syne news, the Banchory gig and more island life

Dear folks,

I hope you’re doing well, holding up and finding some personal power in your situations. I’m in exactly the right place geographically, on Lismore where I feel right at home. Despite the comings and goings of Covid on the news, I’m trying to stay focussed and in flow with my own affairs, which happen to involve sorting out the sewage pipe (we discovered two sets of rods stuck in it), getting the boiler working again, and listening in to those tiny voices that help me on the path to realising the next show. 

Unfortunately my planned tour of Auld Lang Syne has been cancelled due to restrictions, making it unviable, but most of the venues have asked me back same time in 2023. Hopefully we’ll have a juicy tour lined up for January 2023.

Meanwhile I can sit back and continue hermitting away with what needs to be done. I’m discovering the musical potential of the stone pendulum and have three clear notes that could assist and help create any number of songs and words. Exciting. 

Here’s a bit more about what’s coming up…
