I’ve been busy at the coalface working on the beginnings of my new Mull Historical Society album, and my next novel — as usual you’ll be the first to know when they gather steam.
Few things to tell you about below, including news of my first children’s picture book with accompanying music, but in the meantime I’m playing a few nice early summer Mull Historical Society shows, at Kintyre Songwriters Festival, Glasgow’s West End Festival and at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum – all details below. Also, you can check out the Channel 4 archive documentary on MHS featured below.
