Very happy to be performing at the TweedLove Festival on this stunning day!
After my solo set, I’ll also be sitting in on bass with lazy groove outfit Floozie Soo
Enjoy the sunshine & happy weekends all.
So a few months back I played some double-bass on my pal Kat Healy‘s new EP “When You Are Gone“.
The EP launch is this week and tonight is the Glasgow launch at the Beresford Lounge where I’ll be opening up with a solo set and then playing bass for Kat.
You should check out all her lovely music HERE.
Here’s a photo of her staring directly into the sun which proves that she’s not afraid to break the rules…
Having just finished the shortest UK tour in the world where I drove from Edinburgh to Manchester & back to play a lovely wee gig at The Odd Bar, I thought I’d do another one:
This Thursday, Saturday and Sunday see me in London, Beaconsfield and Leeds! (I’ve heard that it’s important to have rest days on tour). Hopefully see some of you there:
Thursday 24th April – The 12 Bar Club, London
Saturday 26th April – The Hat Club, Beaconsfield
Monday 28th April – The Gaslight Club, Leeds
NOTE – Discount tickets for The 12 Bar Club if you print off this flyer!
The last tour, despite an 8 hour round trip, did facilitate 2 stops at the legendary Tebay Services where I acquired a rider for my 4am unwind…
This Sunday I’ll be in London to play a charity gig at Kiss The Sky bar in Crouch End as part of a 5 act bill. Be lovely to see some of you there!
Tomorrow I’m delighted to be part of Scotland’s newest boutique music festival – Tweedsmuir Festival - and part of such a great line-up.
I’m on around 3pm – come and milk the summer with me one last time!
First of all a massive thanks to all who came to my Edinburgh Fringe festival shows – sadly I didn’t get any audio or video recordings which was a shame as I was very proud of the band and my special guests Tracey & Mat.
Kudos to my underpaid musicians: Andy Farquhar, John Need, Jules Philip, Tracey Braithwaite and Mat Clements.
It’s FREE and sharing the bill are 3 stunning musicians I know well:
Beer may also be involved…
Mat & I have worked together as part of seminal funk outfit The Ugly Groove Movement and more recently on my own music. Above is a pic of Mat playing Hang on an early recording of Quicksand which may yet surface…
Hope you’re all having a good August!
The first of my two Edinburgh Fringe full band shows is TONIGHT!
I’m delighted to announce my special guest is my old pal Tracey Braithwaite with whom I’ve performed with the likes of KT Tunstall, Horse and The Gospel Truth Choir.
Show starts at 10pm at The Jazz Bar (venue 57) and there will be tickets on the door.
In other news, those of you who were at the Stanley Odd & the Electric String Orchestra gig were treated to a stunning evening of music reflected by this lovely 5 star review!
Nice bit about my support slot too – thanks to Jack McLuckie (reviewer)!
It’s that time of year again – so I thought I’d be the first to thrust a flyer in your face!
I’m doing two 90 min sets with my band this year at The Jazz Bar and will be featuring a special guest musician each night!

In other news, I’m honoured to be supporting the band that put Scottish Hip-Hop on the map – Stanley Odd – as they reprise their incredible Celtic Connections performance with the Electric String Orchestra TONIGHT at the Queen’s Hall!

Summer has finally arrived and I’m very chuffed to announce I’ll be doing a wee acoustic set at this year’s Insider Festival! Think stunning location (near Aviemore), laid-back friendly vibe, great food, fancy dress and above all – amazing music (full line-up HERE)
If you go to one boutique festival this year – this one’s my absolute favourite.
This’ll be my third year performing in one guise or another but first time with my own music so really excited! My MaGoodBody compadres are also doing their own sets so who knows what may happen under the influence of a 3 days of music and fine ale…
The theme this year is Around the World so I’m working on my costume. Here’s me with some friends at the 2011 Victorian themed Insider!
Flight’s leave very soon so make sure you have your tickets!
Good weekends all!
