I’m delighted to share news of the publication of two new books this month from me — a Memoir and a Children’s Picture Book (with songs) — and launch events at Border Book Festival & Edinburgh Book Festival. Both are now available to pre-order.
Mull Historical Society UK Autumn Tour dates are announced further below (feat. readings from my memoir). The new MHS album ‘Wakelines’ is Produced by Bernard Butler and is out in September on Xtra Mile Recordings — we put the final lick of paint on at Abbey Road Studios last week (below) — couldn’t be happier with it! Much more to come on that…
Colin MacIntyre Memoir: Hometown Tales: The Boy in the Bubble — say W&N Books: it is a bright, intensely funny and deeply felt memoir about growing up on the Isle of Mull from award-winning musician (Mull Historical Society) and author of the award-winning ‘The Letters of Ivor Punch’, Colin MacIntyre. In book shops from 28th June 2018.

In shops from June 29th, published by Little Door Books. Illustrated by Catherine Thomas. The book comes with a CD of specially written songs and audiobook. Say Little Door Books: Meet ‘Drum’, the orchestra drum who is feeling very humdrum. When Drum is feeling unhappy he stops playing and the entire orchestra comes to an embarrassing halt. But with the help of his friends – a cast of colourful instruments, as well as ironing mice and shaving pigeons – Drum realises that without him keeping the beat, they lose their way and that they need him to save the day!
