There's been a few developments since the last blog; after a couple of successful solo slots and a bit of getting to know folk, well...we have a band again!
There's an incredible amount of talent in Orkney, and I'm very pleased to be working with Colin Drever (bass), El Kevano (keys), Will Scott (drums) and Andy Taylor (guitar). These guys are well known and respected up here, and with good reason. It's been a while in the making but I'm pleased to say the band is beginning to gather momentum with two festival dates next month (September), punctuated by a spot at our usual stomping ground, The Auld Motorhoose. Check the shows page, as I'm hopeful more wil be added.
As if that wasn't enough, The Duchess and myself have got together with drummer David Stevenson to form a trio. This is a more traditional blues approach, and we will be debuting our new set at the Stromness Legion on 17 September. Looking forward to getting out there!
After a long lay-off, it's good to be working again.
