The end of a rollercoaster year

OK so moaning about making music is likely to elicit the response, "Tell it to the miners!" And justifiably so. As hard work goes, sitting in pubs and lapping up the applause from the dozen drunks in front of you isn't up there with deep sea welding or portaloo cleaning at a big festival. But God damn it, we've earned our right to WHINGE! It's what we do when we're together. And boy, is it getting harder out there. Nobody is buying albums, and at the same time, while the big dogs might be… Continue

Music, bookings, and community in the digital world

Hi folks~



I'm a new member here, from Alaska in the United States. I had already opened a page at the Concertsinyourhome.com site, and came across this one while working on some booking dates.



When I first began playing music and looking for gigs, I was making phone calls and sending out promo packages with a cassette tape! CDs were way beyond non-commercially signed musicians, and the Mac Classic II (along with the early recording software) didn't really exist yet. I got… Continue

Reviews from Holland and Belgium....

Google translations of these quotes are below:



Westcoastpop van het zuiverste water, zoals verderop ‘First Love Freezes’ en ‘The Night She Learned To Drive’ met hun sprankelende countryfolkpop het gehoor strelen….Tangle- Free World’ is een veelzijdige en bloedmooie popplaat, waar ook de meer puristisch ingestelde americana liefhebber, veel luisterplezier aan zal beleven.” -- Huub Thomassen, Real Roots Café



Ook "Tangle-Free World" bevat weer… Continue

Playin' a Brammer

We played an online brammer into the dawning of Saint Andrew's day; there were scotnats, expats, michaels, floras, traquairs, observers, andrews and james (and who were these people, what was their occupation?) thomases, maries, ishbels, christines. The repartee scintillated wi quotes from MacDiarmid, MacLean, Nietzsche, Clifford Douglas, Deorsa Iain Deorsa, Neill Gunn, George Gunn, William Neill and R Burns himself. Then "Scotsman"… Continue
