Variety is the spice ...
Gigs? Gigs? What's a gig??!!
The Burns time of year, and a couple of grand evenings ... an annual supper at Bridge of Allan on the 24th and then a very special gig on Burns' night at his cottage birth place in Alloway (covering for Ali McCulloch, who is stravaiging the length and breadth of the U.S. with the Gregg violin!).
"The Twa Fiddles" concert at the Scottish Parliament was a memorable evening. Alastair McCulloch played the Gregg Violin (once owned by a dancing master who played for Burns and his cronies at the Bachelor's Club) and yours truly played Niel Gow's fiddle. Thanks to John Swinney for sponsoring this event.
The first "Twa Fiddles" performance was in Ayr on the 23rd January, 2019. A year ago! Time flies!
