The New CD > Dublin > Washington DC > new website

It's been an absolutely amazing month. We released "Sangs o Bairns an Hame" Volume 1 at the end of November and have sold an astounding 1000 copies already - the Christmas rush caught us by surprise and we had to rush-order a second run of a further 1000. Thanks to everyone for your support - we hope you like it! We're hoping to get Volume Two out in Spring/Summer dv.

Also, we got invited by major Irish traditional band Kila to play a show with them in Vicar Street in Dublin on 22nd December, but sadly we weren't able to do it at what was for us relatively short notice. We wish we'd have been able to do it, but hopefully there'll be a next time.

Finally, we've been invited to go to the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington DC next June/July for their annual 10 day festival. This is a massive privilege and opportunity for us, so hopefully we'll be able to go.

We're also finalising a new web site which we hope will be live during January. We'd like it to become a source for all sorts of old Scots and Ulster Scots gospel material that we've gathered up over the years (copyright issues permitting). There's a real appetite out there for the stuff and we'd like to make it available.

Over and out - Happy New Year!
