Following on from the session at Auchterarder, we went across to SAE in Glasgow to lay down some tracks for a forthcoming EP of original songs, and concert favourites. More details soon.

Laura-May in the studio
Our dear friend Nick Hamilton came up with an idea recently.
He and son Lewis, (Lewis Hamilton and the Boogie Brothers) have recently completed their home recording studio, and suggested that the Scottish Blues comunity might like to consider contributing to a sampler album. Jocks’s Juke Joint Vol.1 will be released shortly, and will be available from the participating artistes and other outlets at a cost of £9.99.
Laura-May, Richard and Pete went up to Auchterarder to record with Nick and Ian Gibney a new song by Pete called “You can’t Hang” which is track 3 on the album. It also features a solo track by another Bel-Air, Lovat “Houndog” Fraser, as well as cuts by Stevey Hay, Wille Logan…17 great original tracks in all.
Volume 2 is already in the works…

28th-30th July – Pittenweem Arts Festival Cabaret
A really enjoyable and novel experience – working with the wonderful Cabaret Boom Boom, Donald Grant and Nikki the bellydancer. Great audiences, who joined in and were up dancing on the stage at the end of the shows.
Here’s a few pics and videos – there’s much more over on FaceBook…
