thanks for review of Bunk Beds - I think? You say you liked it but numbers aren't that great. But it's cool! I do everything myself and I'm probably better at writing than recording ' probably lol.

Hello there Duncan. Many thanks for your festive review of We Wish You a Merry Christmas, and sorry you were landed with such an unseasonal task. I keep that number switched off for most of the year, and I didn't realise it could still come up for review!

I've just been listening to some of your tunes, and I've really enjoyed them. The corbies convention, the Comrie pug, a long way from home - all great numbers, with a percussive guitar driving them along. And then there's Eilean a' Cheo. Very evocative of the West of Scotland. Made me think of the water horse meeting the pleasant maiden on a misty, rainy hillside in Julie Fowlis's rendering of Dh'èirich mi moch.

Well, I'm a bit of a folkie myself. I live in Belgium and host a monthly folk club here. Usually in the flesh, but Covid has turned them into virtual sessions on Skype. If you ever feel like joining us for a session, just let me know. A small group and all very informal and friendly. And a broad definition of "folk" - more or less anything unplugged.

Anyway, the main advantage of the online approach is that it does away with geography. We already have one regular player in the States (also a Broadjam member) and another in Australia.

Cheers,

Ian

Hello Ian.
No problem with the Christmassy review. Every day I wake up is Christmas.
I'd be very interested in joining the session. Can you send some details on how to connect and participate please.

Very well done. Even before you mentioned the specific viewpoint, you took me to the Dunfermline Abbey viewing parapet to look over the River Forth on a typical rainy Dunfermline night in the autumn, a light rain falling and clouds passing low and dense over the river. You obviously have good knack for creating visuals. Well done you.
I'm a Dunfermline ex-pat, transplanted to Atlanta. I always make a visit to the Abbey when I'm home. You took me there again, looking over the Forth valley and the original abbey walls, where I climbed and adventured as a boy. Thank you for the free trip home.

Hiya Robin.
Thanks very much. Maybe we can catch up when I'm back over there, post shit-storm. I try t get back every year. I had a quick scan over your songs. I think we're close to being all over the same map in terms of genre-spread.
I like it.

Good luck. Stay safe, Slainte.

BTW. I just posted the finished album with final versions of most of these songs.
I'll be putting up my other 2 albums soon.
