Vote for Piping Live 2008!

If you live in Glasgow you no doubt heard the bagpipes throughout the summer – this was organised by Piping Live and culminated (possibly the wrong word choice)  in their Piping festival which by all accounts was most excellent. 

The Scottish Trad Music Awards announced the list of final nominations yesterday and  Piping Live! 2008 has made the final shortlist for the ‘Event of the Year’ award.   Piping Live is in category 7 up against the Gordon Duncan Memorial Concert, the Jura Festival and Shetland Fiddle Fren.  To vote for Piping Live as your favourite event of the year please go to and click through the categories.

    Nothing against bagpipes themselves, but I do recall a group of bagpipers practicing for said event a few yards from our office!

    Bah humbug!

    Blast from the past here.

    I fell into your site and was not only mightely impressed by your blog but doubly pleased to see you supporting the old baggies.

    I have my own folk band now called Caberfeidh and we are doing gigs round the city.

    Anyways, how are you man? Keeping well?
