Well we are back home after our mountain and lochs/lakes holiday. It was about a 1700 mile round trip taking in Glasgow, North West Scotland, The Lake District and Snowdonia. Lot’s of amazing scenery along the way, it was also great to catch up with lot’s of friends during the trip.

Whilst in Glasgow we went to see an excellent band called Bricolage. The 1990’s were also playing, they were pretty good as well, have to say though that the highlight was meeting James Kirk. For those that don’t know him, he was one of the founding members of the group Orange Juice. He released an excellent solo album a couple of years ago called “You can make it if you boogie”. Turned out to be a lovely chap, very funny and interesting. He even managed to give us a few tips for things to look out for in the highlands – he was quite the tour guide.

Lot’s more to write, but lots of stuff to catch up with around the house as well. Just time to say that I’ll be playing a few tunes at the next “Lost in the woods” evening. This will take place on April 20th at The Lansdown in Clifton. The performers will be James McArthur, Joe Volk and Jonny Collins, it’s all arranged by those nice people from Aspen Woods. Admission is £3, which ain’t bad.
