ALBUM LAUNCH

The new album, INTO THE LIGHT, was launched at a special fundraiser for Bethany Christian Trust homeless charity on Saturday 25th November in Edinburgh. You can get a link on my Facebook page to a video Colin MacDonald took with his phone. (For the Dylanologists out there, someone is even heard shouting 'Judas' when I picked up the electric guitar!)

In spite of a cold night and a low turnout we managed to raise £226 for Bethany. It was a good night and the band played great.

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. You will find the full album version of the song in the clips on the Albums page.

The album was launched.
