Songs of Social Justice coming up again, 22nd November 2013. That's a Friday and we'll be kicking off around 7:15. It's looking like a great night out, with Me and Rowan filling a couple of hours, then dear friends CLOVA (aka Martin, Aoife and Callum) taking it through to about 11:15.

It's at Avant Garde in King Street Glasgow. Rowan and I will be in the wee back room and CLOVA will be on stage in the big, main bar. The whole thing will be a live braodcast from Celtic Music Radio, 7:00pm til late.

I received confirmation yesterday that Ross from Celtic Music Radio has invited us (me and Rowan) into the studio to sing some of the songs from the SOCIAL JUSTICE show that didn't get recorded. Listen out if you can on 1530AM in the Glasgow area, or worldwide on the web at www.celticmusicradio.net . We're on the THANK FOLK IT'S FRIDAY show at 8:00pm on Friday, 21 September.

Had a great time with a new show, SONGS OF SOCIAL JUSTICE. Tried it out at The Glad Cafe in Shawlands with a good turnout and made a nice little pot for the Glad Foundation 
www.thegladcafe.co.uk.  I've wanted to do something like this for a while, a collection of songs that bridge outright rants, through clever and witty satire to beautiful, sing-along anthems. There's every chance I'll do it again.

Rowan, the youngest of my beautiful daughters, did a half hour feature spot and blew everyone away with her fabulous singing and her startling arrangements.


Celtic Music Radio came to the show  to record it for a future braodcast. Unfortunately, due to a technical hitch, the recording didn't work.
