UPCOMING GIGS

Next gig is in Carloway on Saturday 18 November at 7.30pm in the local Community Centre. This will be a solo concert, as it's a bridge too far (or no bridge!) for the rest of the band. First gig in Lewis, so really looking forward to it.

A gig to launch the new album is set for 25 November in Edinburgh - at Buccleuch Free Church, West Crosscauseway, EH8 9JP at 7.30pm. Entry by donation to homeless charity Bethany Christian Trust.

THE LION OF DONEGAL

One of the new songs is about a distant relation by marriage who won a VC in the First World War - James Duffy from Donegal.

INTO THE LIGHT

Another of my new songs was inspired by Murdo Murchison's blogs. Click here for a new mixed but unmastered version of the song INTO THE LIGHT.

NEW ALBUM

New album,'Into the light', is nearly finished. We've recorded ten songs - with powerful rhythm from Rob on drums and Phil on bass, Alex on vocals and guitar, along with some wizard organ from Cailean, some great harmonica parts from Spider MacKenzie (check out Spider's website), superb backing vocals from Jon and Rebecca, and tremendous brass arrangements from Jon with Vickie and Stephen. The album should be released mid November.

COMMENDED

"A9 in The Capstone Centre, Alness was one of the highlights of 2014. Many from the community came to the event and enjoyed a night of fine music and storytelling in song that touched the soul." Iain MacAskill, Rosskeen

Alex's last album was called A9. You can buy copies on the Sales page.

Some comments on Alex's first album Like the River:

"Good 'real' music of heart and substance and message."
Calum Macdonald (Runrig)

"I very much enjoyed your CD - particularly the opening track, which is like a Calvinist Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts."
Tom Morton (Broadcaster and journalist)
