Forest records birthday gig on Weds 27th April

I am doing a set of songs with Hazel Thompson on Wednesday evening to celebrate the launch of Edinburgh’s Forest Cafe (Forest Happenings) 20th birthday album.

There are some amazing other acts and I imagine it will be as eclectic and gracefully chaotic as ever! I’m on around the 10-10.20pm (BST) mark (ish)

Forest Records 20th birthday album

Forest 20/20 is a new double-sided compilation celebrating 20 years of Forest – Edinburgh’s only volunteer-powered grassroots arts space. Some of my favourite gigs of all time have been at this magic arts and activism space so I was really happy to have a tune included on the album.

Forest 20/20 – much like Forest itself has always been – is an eclectic mix of styles, themes and creativity – from poetry to punk, chiptune to folk tunes – Forest has always had time and space for everyone. I hope you will enjoy the sounds of Forest contained within and find something old that will trigger a memory of good times past and something new to help celebrate the good times still to come:

Gigging from home

I had a lot of fun performing from home last week as part of my history of land rights show Three Acres And A Cow. We had around 500 people in the audience which was mind blowing including people from Canada, Australia and Orkey!

Below is my front room set up for the show including webcam on a tripod, mic into audio interface into pc and a tv for monitoring the show. Below is a photo someone shared of my face broadcast on their massive tv! There was another hillarious photo of someone watching from a laptop in sunny Portugal but I can’t seem to find it right now.
