We have been very busy with gigs the last few months. In August we had our first trip to Spain to play at the Festival Internacional de la Sierra. Although we only played one night they gave us accomodation for five nights so we had plenty of time to spend at the pool.
Also there from Scotland were Seylan Baxter, Cheyenne Brown and Ruaridh Pringle and we all played on stage together on our last night. We will be going back to the festival next year before going to Germany for the first time. More dates in Germany are to be confirmed so keep checking our tour dates.
Cambridge Folk Festival were kind enough to send the band tickets for the weekend. Although we didn’t get to play we had a great time meeting up with old friends and making new ones. Jeana Leslie & Siobhan Miller launched their album at the festival and were great craic. While down there we met up with Fatea Magazine who have gave our EP a great review. They’ll also feature a track on their next cover CD. Click here to read the review.
In August we returned to The Wee Folk Club for a fringe concert. We all just managed to squeeze in to the corner to play to a full house. Frank Burkitt from the Garden Sessions was there and recorded some of the show. You can hear the Loch Tay Boat Song and an interview with Paul by clicking here.
The Garden Sessions also did a special on Brian McNeill’s song The Yew Tree which featured a recording of the song Paul and myself recorded. Listen by clicking here.
The Living Tradition printed an article on the Moniaive Folk Festival in which they kindly referred to us as “young band to look out for”. Last week we were interviewed by the magazine and that article should be published in the next edition.
This week we’re off to play the Edinburgh Folk Club, the Acoustic Music Club in Kirkcaldy and then Knockengorroch Hairth Festival. Hope to see you at a gig soon!
