Full Performance – (Danny Kyle Open Stage) ‘Celtic Connections 2020’

Had a really great time through in Glasgow earlier this week performing on the Danny Kyle Stage at Celtic Connections. It’s such a rare two week long festival in Scotland celebrating folk, Ceilidh, and world culture – a real gem of a fest!

I was blessed to perform a 25 minute set, quite nervous with the anticipation of the Celtic Connections stage, and just loved it!

You can watch my full performance below:

Laughing All The Way To The Bank!

Aaaaahh 2020 you’re coming in like a storm…. Big changes happening inside and out – and they’re not always comfortable!

I have dreamt and visioned a world transforming all of my life. When I was a bairn, all I wanted to do was create, cartoons were my first love, which turned into computer programming to make computer games, then at the age of Fourteen turned into my life-long love of Music!

Creativity has been my closest friend for as long as I can remember, keeping me inspired & always questioning everything that goes on within & all around me – without creativity guiding me throughout all of these years I don’t know where I would be today!

In 2004 after my first ten years of finding my way & path into music (from teaching myself guitar, performance & songwriting, to performing in my first series of bands & first-time studying music at college 2001-2004), I independently recorded, self-produced & released my debut solo singer-songwriter album ‘Who is’.

Since 2004, I have continued listening to my creativity & have created and independently released three further studio albums: ‘What is & Where is – 2006‘, ‘Warmheart – 2014‘, & ‘HUMAN – 2019 ~ each with a distinct story of their own. Here today, I have begun a playlist on spotify celebrating the complete musical journey starting with my latest album and working backwards…

‘For I am the Laird’ (New Scottish Poem)

For I am the Laird

For I am the laird, the lord of the land
Through the power of my hand, I set these things undone

I relinquish my land for community use in the name of Wallace and Robert the Bruce
I give to you our people, the soil that makes us whole
I give back to you our Eden, for it has taken its toll

A gift of unity from pain and separation, hoping for democracy, an indigenous revelation
A circle counted as elders, a language that comes first and foremost from the Soul

I give to you our people, the soil that makes us whole
I give back to you our Eden, for it has taken its toll

Scotland, rise – be a nation again

– – – – – – – – –

‘For I am the Laird’ will be on my forthcoming new album ‘HUMAN’. Release details to be announced soon!

Scottish Independence March – Galashiels 1st June 2019

On Saturday (June 1st) I travelled south to the Scottish Borders for the Scottish Independence March in Galashiels. What a day, around 5000 of us marched through Galashiels declaring our Sovereignty and foremost intention to ceate an Independent Scotland. I performed at the rally in Scott Park in Galashiels after the march – you can watch my performance >>> Here <<<

// Below are a few pictures and a video that I captured form the March //

 

AUOB Galashiels 2019

An awesome and liberating day for Scotland – with an independence movement that is growing stronger and stronger with every breath. Our independence is coming…

“Yesterday in Galashiels was Awesome! Another great and important victory for the grassroots soul-connected movement that is ‘Scottish Independence’ 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Absolutely loved it, and thank you so much for having me on to perform. It was and is a total pleasure to share in what I believe in so strongly with people who hear, share and act on the call. I am humbled by the power of our Scottish Independence movement…

// Thank you to all the organisers, workers, marchers, activists, for creating such a beautiful family-driven powerful and peaceful day of celebration of our nation //

…Stay Strong – Stay True…
….Our Time Has Come…

I performed 4 songs after Marching. Below is a live stream from Independence Live who passionately broadcast the whole March & Rally live. My performance starts at 2hr 47mins (around 10mins long).

*Special thanks to the sound team for working on getting the best sound out of what was a very dynamic situation. Cheers guys, really appreciate it!

John Smith support slot @TheDrouthyCobbler 5th Oct 2017

IMG_3705Had an excellent time supporting John Smith on his European/UK tour last night in Morayshire’s city of Elgin at the nice wee homely venue of The Drouthy Cobbler

I knew it would be a sensitive, listening environment so I opted for a mellow stripped back set of acoustic guitar and voice. I selected to play five original songs with guitar and voice, and one guitar instrumental using loops to end – no poetry or Celtic Fingerstyle guitar from me last night!

It was a total pleasure of a venue to perform at, all staff were very professional, welcoming, and warm. The sound was excellent and sound-team likewise – I would highly recommend it. It’s not always you receive such quality professionalism in this industry!

My good lady managed to capture a wee bit of the soundcheck on Facebook Live. Check out the video below – this is 40 mins before performance time, soundchecking for my last song (the one looped instrumental). Cheers to Phil the sound engineer for providing a quality sound!

– Soundcheck –


The audience was lovely and very receptive in a 60 capacity tables and chairs seated venue, the lights were down and the place was silent – a joy to perform. For my set I performed songs: Mother – Old Man – Pilgrim – Home – Heartspace – Awakening. We managed to capture the last four songs live-streamed on Facebook Live. Check them out below!

– Performance (last four songs)

It was very interesting to perform as I’d rehearsed and performed some my songs in different keys for the first time. I’ve been finding since recording some of these songs 10 years ago! that my voice has changed. I took ‘Old Man’ up a tone, ‘Pilgrim’ up two tones, and ‘Home’ down a tone and a half. It was great to hear these adapations in a live setting and experience the audience reaction (which thankfully was positive!).

John Smith’s concert which followed was truly excellent. A full house of beautiful songs, varied in set, and use of instrument(s). John was as warm and welcoming as his audience, his music and performance reminded me why I love music the way I do… Thank you John!

Overall a great experience at The Drouthy Cobbler in Elgin. Thank you John Smith, The Drouthy Cobbler, and Beyond Presents for having us.

We’re looking forward to the return visit!
