Another day up the hill with the dogs, then home to prepare for going out to film Scott Nicol in Crofters.

I went to Glasgow in the morning with Freya for her induction into the RCS Juniors and had a lovely trip. Whilst there, I got a call from tonight's act at Crofters' asking if I'd fill in for him because the ferry service was pure dodgeball and he needed t

I've not played in Crofters' Music Bar for a while. This is my chatting about that as I get ready and set up my mics, then my thoughts as I drive home after the gig.
