April in Paris

Wow, it's been really, really busy here...and the volcano has made things even busier. I'm staying an extra six days because I couldn't fly out, but we're having very fruitful collaborations musically. Here's a link to our most recent video:

Cafe Noodle - The Story So Far

A few weeks ago we thought we'd try something - an online venue based around a "ning" network. So I posted out to some of our friends to see what would happen.



It's been great really - friendships have been made and in a very short time I think its become a remarkable community which I am very proud to be part of. Some great collaborative projects have happened and some brilliant points have been… Continue

BELFAST TO BERLIN

BELFAST TO BERLIN



It was like God was twisting out the water from a wet, grey flannel blanket the day that I arrived in Belfast. February 25th, 2010. The good news was that The Crown Bar was directly across the street from my hotel.



I had read about The Crown in one of my favorite novels, "Gospel" by Wilton Barnhardt, and the old place certainly lived up to its convivial, venerable hype and it might almost live up to its claim that it is, as their t-shirt declares, 'The… Continue

Excited to return to Europe for Summer '10 tour!, Smile, it's good 4 U!

Did you know that that timeless song "Smile (though your hear is aching)" was written by Charlie Chaplin for the movie Modern times in 1936?



Michael Jackson and Nat King Cole both did popular versions later. My favorite is by Madeleine Peyroux.



Did you know that smiling is beneficial to your health?



I looked up the health benefits after reading Thich Nhat Hanh's book Being Peace, which reminded me of the importance of meditation, breathing, and smiling. I… Continue

Sweet toothed serpent

Just checked out Viper Central on the Medicine Show. Completely unable to prevent my toes from tapping and hands reaching for the jug of moonshine stashed beneath my workbench. What a rich, sweet jangle of strings and tangle of voices. Casts a spell not quite like anything I've heard before. Take that pretty girl by the hand and climb through the mountain mist and scent of pine resin, for this is courtly music with burred edges. Lovely.

The Skunnered on radio

Hi, If you are able to tune into CelticMusicRadio online, or if in the Glasgow area on 1530mw/am We (The Skunnered)are one of two bands that were supporting the Ivan Drever Band (IVB) at a recent concert. They are broadcasting highlights of this show this Saturday between 4-6pm. The other band is called Jane & The Shame who play some glorious Americana music.

IVB are also well worth a listen. Ivan's singing style and songs are close to what Dougie McLean does but with a rockier harder… Continue

De Rosa (w/Clockwork & Sarah Thomson), Royal Hotel, Portree – 27th March 2009

De Rosa (w/Clockwork & Sarah Thomson), Royal Hotel, Portree – 27th March 2009



I noticed, looking at the bill for Lanarkshire prog-rockers De Rosa’s show in Portree last week, that I went to school with everyone except the band themselves. Currently on an outreach tour in some of the more remote reaches of Scotland (with gigs in Fort William, Mull, and Aberdeen), De Rosa have been playing in town halls and makeshift venues all over the country. It just so happened that our paths… Continue

What's in a word (or two)?

I wrote, a blog or two ago, "John Barleycorn beware".



It appears I wasn't kidding. I have finally set myself to learning it, and delighting in developing a guitar part for it (that I can actually play). I've taken as my model Chris Wood's version and before that a version by Martin Carthy - so plenty to try and live up to there I think.



I absolutely love this song; it's deep, deep resonance with that part of me descended from Cotswold peasantry perhaps. Or simply because I… Continue
