I hope your summer is off to a superb start.  The last couple of weeks have kept me guessing what time zone I’m in.  I flew home to bonnie Scotland where I played at a touching memorial for Grahame Thomson, my musical compadre from our band back in the late 80’s, “Panic No More”.  While I was there, I was also invited to perform a song I wrote for the local rugby club, Jedforest, as part of their 30 year re-union of winning the Border League.  I spent some great time with my folks and some friends I hadn’t seen for a while.  It was good to take the Highway Home :) 

A couple of days after getting back to Canada, I was back on the road, this time to Chicago to perform at the Chicago Scottish Festival.  With temperatures reaching over 100 F, I have to say, there were moments on stage in my kilt where it felt like a new form of “Scottish Hot Yoga”.  Despite the heat, it was a fun festival to play and an honour to be asked to sing the Canadian and Scottish National Anthems at the opening ceremonies. 

Lots of Summer Gigs Coming Up 
Now that I am back in Ontario, I am looking forward to an action-packed summer full of gigs.  Please check the Shows Page here and maybe there’s a gig you’d like to mark on your calendar. It’d be great to see you! 

The Latest on “SIX IN 6/8” 
I am excited to hear from my radio tracker in the US that he’s making strong headway into the Americana, Adult Album Alternative and College formats with nearly 50 stations playing the record including some pretty major markets.  If you’ve not yet heard the new record, please check it out here and if you are a streamer, find your link here
