GIGS

I'm playing a solo gig in An Caladh, Benbecula, on Saturday 8 September at 7pm.

The following Saturday (15 September)the band are backing me in Helmsdale at 7.30pm in the Free Church (the old police station - hope we give an arresting performance!)

We've got an acoustic gig as part of Doors Open Day in Edinburgh (the Causey outside Buccleuch Free Church) on Saturday afternoon 29th.

We're playing Livingston on the 6th October, then Smithton on 1st December.
