UK dates with Alex Cornish & Adam Holmes have been going well and met lots of†lovely people at the gigs.
Back to London this week playing at Green Note in Camden, London supporting Adam Holmes again on Dec 2nd
Final leg of the tour with Alex begins at the Bush Hall on Dec 8th.
Here’s a couple of wee reviews from the tours, kindly reviewing my solo support set as well:
First from the gig at the amazing Convent Club†with Adam Holmes
Next from the Aberdeen date on the Alex Cornish tour:
Also, we had a day off during the last week of the Alex Cornish tour so we went into a studio and did this:
Roll on the next dates!
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…
Had a great time at Tweedsmuir Festival last weekend and the lovely ZoŽ Bestel posted this video of my band playing the not entirely serious Caipirinha song…

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!

Quick update on some gigs:
London peeps, I’m very chuffed to announce that I’ll be supporting acclaimed songsmith Alex Cornish at the prestigious Bush Hall in London on Thursday Nov 25th.
This is a Christmas extravaganza gig for Alex featuring string section, backing vocalists and his band and tickets are selling like hot cross buns. †I’ll be playing double-bass for Alex but also opening up the evening with a solo set to warm your cockles.
I’ve been beavering away on my EP so at the risk of writing some words I may have to eat later, I’m trying my hardest to get it finished so that this can be the official launch!
GET YOUR TICKETS ONLY FROM: HERE
Meanwhile, if any of you fancy a jaunt up to St. Andrews next week, I’m playing at the fortnightly Acoustic Moods event hosted by Malice Productions. †I’m the headline act so feeling quite special. †Also billed are Dirty Bunker and Steph Hay.
Facebook event listing here and here’s a pic of the poster from the 1981 film Chariots of Fire…
New songs are in progress and work on the album’s progressing nicely.
Catch you soon!
