Gran's House Studio
I’m really chuffed to have been nominated at this years Scottish Traditional Music Awards in the Instrumentalist of the year category alongside the brilliant Patsy Reid, James Duncan MacKenzie & Chris Stout. Blazin’ Fiddles have also been nominated for ‘Folk Band of the Year’. I’ll be heading up to Aberdeen on Saturday the 7th of December for the party and to open the show with Blazin’ Fiddles!
It’s been another busy and productive time for the band. Our new album ‘SIX’ has just arrived back from the pressing plant and we are delighted with the results. It’s been great fun working on this record with the band. We’ll be launching it on the 31st of January at our Celtic Connections gig at the Old Fruitmarket, Glasgow.
If you get a chance (and you need another Blazin’ Fiddle fix) you can check out our YouTube channel. I’ve been posting some videos of us making the new album and a few tuition videos featuring band members teaching some tunes from the record.
Over the summer I’ve also been working alongside some of Scotland’s finest in Jim Sutherland’s new project Struileag. There’ll be an album made in the new year and there’s lots of talk of live performances around the world with the band throughout 2014. This is going to be huge!
Looking forward to 2014! if it’s anywhere near as good as this year I’ll be over the moon
