It’s still October, and it’s all still happening!
October 24, 2014

What a few weeks it’s been! First of all, I’m so glad to announce that I’ve made it to the finals of the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year. The decision was made after a residential weekend held at Wiston Lodge, where all the semi-finalists took part in workshops, ranging from self promotion to Tai Chi! This was a great opportunity to hear from the industries best; Simon Thoumire, Jennifer McGlone from Glow Arts, and Craig Corse from Twenty Two Promotions.

The finals of BBC Young traditional Musician of the Year will be held on the last evening of celtic connections, Sunday 1st February at City Halls, Glasgow.

Last week was also incredibly busy with The Royal National Mòd in Inverness. I had the absolute pleasure of being there with my family, who were there every day cheering me on.

It was my first bash at the Gold Medal, and I’m so chuffed to have won a 1st and 3rd in the qualifying competitions, which resulted in me continuing to the final, where I was placed 2nd. It was such an incredible experience, and I’m already looking forward to the Mòd in Oban next year.

This week I’be be recording Barluath’s new album at Gorbals Sound. We’ve got some amazing material for you to hear.

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated to our kickstarter, it means we can really give this project our all, and present you with some really great music.

It’s all happening in October!
