Edinburgh Fringe

I can’t believe it’s August already.  I was still coming down from my wee jaunt down-under and in between organising Acoustic Edinburgh and some exciting other plans (to be revealed) I’ve been away with Gecko 3 playing at the lovely Kelburn Garden Party and Knockengorroch festivals, the Wickerman festival with Andi Neate and working on forthcoming albums for Douglas Kay and Vicky Gray.

Now the Fringe is in full swing and I’ve got 4 solo dates this month (see gig diary) including tomorrow night as part of this years Acoustic Edinburgh Festival 2009 where I’m very excited to be playing on the bill with the incredible Polly Paulusma.

Last week’s event with Gecko 3 was a gorgeous atmosphere and I’m doing a bit of a Jools Holland this year by also sitting in on double bass with our remaining two headliners – the stunning Rosie Brown and the amazing Andi Neate.

The line up this year as absolutely stunning so if you can get along to one of our Tuesday night’s you’ll have a smile on your face for a long time after.

Last night was the first of my slots at the Underbelly Coo Cafe “A-coo-stic Night” Moonlight Sessions and it was a lovely atmosphere.  I was treated to a set by the incredible Chris Gorman – great songs and amazing voice.  Well worth checking out.  Thanks to all you guys who came to see me : )

I’m back there on the 23rd and a return to The Aragon Acoustic Sunday on the 30th.  Meanwhile, see tomorrow when I open up at Acoustic Edinburgh!

Expect new songs : )

    Hi Paul,
    that’s nice to see you’ve been busy… nice to read a bit of Edinburgh festival too… miss it!
    So here I am again as last time we wrote you said there was a cd coming in july from the Gecko crew so what’s up with that? anything out yet? didn’t see anything about it on the gecko page?

  • Hi Ben – sorry I’ve only just seen your comment!
    Unfortunately working full-time on top of all the music and running Acoustic Edinburgh is slowing down everything I want to do.
    You’re not the first to be badgering about the Gecko 3 album so rest assured it’s beginning to make good progress. Can’t give a launch date just yet but you’ll be the first to know on the Gecko 3 blog.
    It has as much priority as my solo album which I’ve been wanting to do for years so both will definitely be out as early as possible in 2010!
    Take care
