April News!

I've been having a great time recently playing! I was at The Wolf Sessions through in Edinburgh, it was a great day and there was lots of really good music on show.  Last week I played a couple of sets at the Slouch Blues Night and  I also played a wee gig in a poetry bookshop recently in Glasgow for my friend Ellen McAteer,  it was a great night!  Below are some photos from the gigs that have turned up.
