We have just returned from an amazing tour of Austria with the Maeve Mackinnon Trio where we were incredibly well looked after by our host Dietmar Haslinger (Weltenklang productions) & brilliant sound master/driver Martin Zetner. Great gigs, crowds, food, drink; we love this place. Here’s a few photos from our gig in Katau (courtesy of Diana Horvath) – Scottish Colours.

Australia/New Zealand

Now it’s time for us to repack the bags in preparation for our return to Australia & New Zealand this November. We’ll be taking in three shows in Australia (as well as some workshops, keep your eyes peeled for more info…) before hopping over to NZ for some more gigs, culminating in St. Andrews night in Dunedin! To celebrate the trip will also be releasing our track ‘Scotland’s Winter’ as a single (on STEM Music/Planet Records). Hope to see you at one of the shows, and please spread the word if you can! Check out the dates here.
