We are just off the back of our uk-wide tour which has kept us busy for the past month. It’s been really great and what better way to round off the whole thing than getting to play a few of our favourite venues in Scotland - The Ceilidh Place (Ullapool), Universal Hall (Findhorn) and Gaddies (Oyne). Thanks to everyone that made the gigs possible and to all the lovely audiences! Thanks also to Mark Harrison for the photo from London King’s Place above.
Canadian Coast to Coast Summer Tour
Next Monday we head over to Canada for a few weeks of shows. Very exited for what is set to be a really fun tour of festivals across the country. Our first stop is Prince Edward Island for the Festival of Small Halls where we will be spending our time dining on the finest sea food (and doing some gigs). As well as this we are hoping to get to hang out with our pals Rura and Ross & Jarlath who are also over this summer!

Last week we were on BBC Alba as part of the Seirm series. Filmed during Celtic Connections 2015 it features a load of different artists that were performing at the festival. It was a very cold January evening with the snow coming down outside when we filmed this, but good craic and music inside! Here’s a clip of us performing ‘Bowmore Fair’ from Ùrlar. Stay tuned for more clips throughout the series, including James & Megan joining the mighty Danu for a few tunes!
The remainder of our summer will be taken up with rehearsing new material for album number 5. We’ll be headed into the studio early Autumn to get to work, but more news on this soon! However, we will have time to fit in a few festivals in uk & France. Hope to see you out at one of these!
