I haven’t been updating as much as I wanted to. Sufficed to say the EIHF went well – some say the best one yet. It was certainly the biggest I’ve been involved with. Next year’s is April 3rd – 9th 2009.
And the Grace Hewat Polwart trio have had lovely gigs. the Orkney Folk Festival was exceptional! Then we toured round Corsock near Castle Douglas (the midges, the midges, I’m no gonna kid yiz… thanks Wendy!) then Braco in the Perthshire Hills (a storming party afterwards held by Annie’s sister Chris and her lovely husband Alan – fond memories of playing my harp to the plants) and then Dundee Out of the Woods Folk Club.On the same bill was Kim Edgar – a wonderful singer/songwriter and great craic!
So now to Kingussie and Grantown for vocal and stage presence workshops with the kids at the schools there. Then a short break before heading to Festspillene in Norway with the Unusual Suspects on 21st June, then to America.
