Delighted to announce that this Autumn I’ll be curating and hosting a series of ‘Tae Sup Wi’ A Fifer’ concerts at the Adam Smith Theatre in Kirkcaldy.

The first three line-ups are up and announced now – details below or go to www.taesup.co.uk for the whole thing…

On 3rd March 2015, Mulberry Bank Auctions will be auctioning off a very limited bottle of whisky that was created to commemorate the release of my 8th album The Cellardyke Recording and Wassailing Society.

Alongside the whisky, within the same auction lot (no.54), a CD of C.R.A.W.S signed by James Yorkston, KT Tunstall, Pictish Trail, Alexis Taylor, Emma Smith, Jon Thorne & Fimber Bravo will be included.
