Hi there folks! I've had a necessary break over the past month to recharge my batteries etc. I say rest, but I've actually had a lot of things to do, including beginning to record my long-promised CD. That's been going well, and I hope to have news about when it might be released by the end of the month.

This is a short newsletter to inform people about a couple of events happening closer to my home town in Crieff. Very soon there will be another one with more general happenings. If you're not near Perthshire, feel free to delete!

Skip Gorman in Concert

America's Celtic Cowboy, Skip Gorman & the Multi-talented Scottish Newfoundlanders with Margaret Bennett.

Saturday 2nd August 2014, 7.30pm
at Strathearn Artspace, 2 Comrie Street, Crieff

Many years ago I got hold of a cassette called "Old Time Mandolin" by Skip Gorman. I knew nothing about the player, but I loved the music. When Margaret Bennett told me last year that Skip was coming to my home town of Crieff I was astonished and excited; alas! I had a gig on at the same time so I couldn't go. Now Skip Gorman is back and is playing in Crieff this Saturday. I would recommend trying to come along to this concert, and I hope to see you there.
