Welcome …

In action …

Please sign up for my mailing list for news and gigs. I’ve put a link so well wishers can donate to my favouite charity here: Hearts Great War Memorial – if they so desire. In return you can download a folk version of the Hearts Song by Hector Nichol. It’s all in the ‘Bits and Pieces’ section.

Huge apologies to all those who came to this gig. The organiser cancelled it last minute. I had already booked my flight and was in Germany.

The Hearts Song 2012 Cup Final

Heart of Midlothian are playing tomorrow and for a nice change I get to go to Tynecastle. Here is a cheering version of the Hearts Song which was remixed a little by Guntmar Feuerstein to bring up the levels. It’s basically the Hearts crowd singing at the end of their 1-5 victory in the 2012 Scottish Cup Final over arch rivals Hibernian.

Slàinte mhòr

After fifteen fun years in Germany I am returning to Edinburgh to live in August. Thanks to everyone who made me welcome. It has been a bit of a roller-coaster.
I will still be planning mini tours in Germany. I would advise anyone who wishes to book me to contact me early and check the gig list. Look after yourselves and keep the beer cold for my next visit.
