Our last gig of 2018 is in Smithton on Saturday 1st December at 7.30pm. This is in Smithton Church, Murray Road, Smithton, IV2 7YU. We're delighted to have a special guest - Olivia Ross of The Shee - and we'll be debuting a new song, my tribute to my good friend, the late Rev Kenny MacDonald. Should be a good night!


All my albums are now available for download from Bandcamp, as well as from the Sales page on this site.


You will find clips of all the songs of the new album on the ALBUMS page, and info about each song on the INFO page.

New album,'Into the light', is NOW RELEASED. You can order it on the Sales page. We've recorded ten songs - with powerful rhythm from Rob MacDonald on drums and Phil Onslow on bass, Alex on vocals and guitar, along with some wizard organ from Cailean Morison, some great harmonica parts from Spider MacKenzie (check out Spider's website), superb backing vocals from Jon and Rebecca Green, and tremendous brass arrangements from Jon with Vickie Ross and Stephen Hammer.


Some comments on Alex's music:

"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)
