I first had the opportunity to play at the Fergus Scottish Festival back in 2007. Over the 12 times I’ve played there since, I’ve gotten to know a wonderful group of organizers, fellow musicians and regular attendees and the Festival has come to feel like “a place in my heart called home.”  In 2019, I was inspired to write a song called “The Tartan Kiss” which celebrates all that goes on at the Festival and Games and the Festival asked me to produce a recording of “The Tartan Kiss” of Fergus.  I worked with an incredible array of musicians and the recording has been beautifully rendered in video by Ryan Joyce of Fergus Filming. In this the second year of COVID cancellation, you can check out “The Tartan Kiss” music video which has an honoured place as part of their Wee Digital Ceilidh.
