There have been a few gigs over the last year or two but not as many any more as live performing is not something I am too confident with any more. The last major gig was at Celtic Connections in January 2015. This was with ‘The Bruce’, a commissioned piece by my brother Allan which he wrote for the Bannockburn celebrations in June 2014. We had a full pipe band on stage with 40 plus musicians making up the Orchestra with many well-known names in the Scottish Music world. Neil Johnstone arranged the music and the debut of it in June was fantastic and quite emotional. Dàimh supported the Bruce at Celtic Connections and they played great as always.
I am continuing to teach at the College in Benbecula and I have a dozen or more piping students that I teach as tutor for the South Uist Piping Trust. My work as Artistic Director of Ceòlas is on-going with lots happening with some great plans for the future.
