Last night we joined our friends from the Garden Sessions to celebrate their 2nd birthday at the Pleasance Cabaret bar in Edinburgh. We met the Garden Sessions at the Wee Folk Club in Edinburgh a few years ago and since then they have featured the band on their fortnightly show a couple of times. There is an interview with us from Celtic Connections in 2006 online that took place while we were slightly worse for wear!
Seán and Ruairidh couldn’t make the gig as they both had prior commitments. Seán’s sister Robyn Gray stepped in on fiddle. The concert was recorded for broadcast and the night was in the format of a radio show. Please visit www.gardensessions.co.uk to hear the concert and you can also download some great music for free from the site.
Thanks to Chris, Dave, Jack and Tom for inviting us along and especially for the home made birthday cake! Now we’re off to play at Girvan Folk Festival www.girvanfolkfestival.co.uk for the first time. Hopefully see you there.
