For all those of you who are into Robert McFarlane and Jackie Morris’ Lost Words and Lost Spells and the Spell Songs music project based on them. I’m sure that not all of you look to see what’s on BBC Alba, the Scots Gaelic channel, but Spell Songs from The Celtic Connections festival was on last Friday when most would in any case be at the Wayward Jane guest night. If you are interested, you can get it on iPlayer and catch up on BBC Alba last Friday at 9.00pm - look for Cuirm @ Celtic Connections: Spell Songs.
We're going on tour this spring!
We've got lots of great venues lined up and can't wait to get out and play for you all - let us know if you're coming along, looking forward to seeing you!

Thanks to all at Folk at the Barlow for showing us such a wonderful time tonight!
Sorry to re address this but I had a time-waster mess me about.
I'm not a Cittern player (Just a mediocre guitarist) I have been the organiser of Gregson Lane Folk Club - up in Lancashire since 1988.
I am trying to sell this on behalf of the wife of a late colleague - who bought it back in the nineties and, looking at it, never actually played it.
I really want it to go to someone who can play a cittern and appreciate the quality of this instrument.
Fylde Arch Top Cittern 10 string GDGDG Pristine condition.
Selling due to bereavement
Instrument as new - includes case, leather strap, detachable Microvox instrument mic.
Serial No 4041 made in 1995 - looks like it has never been played and has been thoroughly checked out by a renowned Lancashire Luthier prior to sale.
Catalogue price of a new one is £2500
Collection only - please contact me if you want more info
Selling for £1400 ovno
Lovely weekend and excellent performances all round - well done, and thank you, to the organisers and all who helped in any way or who performed. Video below of Mark Dowding and Sid Calderbank (aka Tacklers' Tales), performing their finale!
The excellent Skerryvore are making an appearance at Bury Met on Friday 19th November:
A friend of mine has two tickets (in row H) that cannot now be used due to a clash of events.
Available for face value of £19 each, contact me if you are interested.
This song celebrates Malala & Aziza, an Afghan girl who fights for the rights of displaced people in Afghanistan, as well as two heroes, male & female, of the fight against Ebola.
This Monday, 16 of August in the anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre, of 1819. This song tells the story of the Stalybridge Town Band, and their involvement in the events of the day.
On this day in 1944, Ann Frank was arrested by the German occupiers of Amsterdam.
A nostalgic song of childhood days, and of a later visit with my then very young niece Laura Bell, to our Blackhill neighbour, Matron Susan McKinney, a legendary midwife at Corbridge. The slow worm was real, the only time I’ve ever seen one, the snakes imaginary - there to try to protect my sisters Eileen and Cecilia against sour apple tummy ache. The ’sedge’ was in fact a variegated grass under the apple tree. I can’t remember how many babies Susan told us she’d delivered, but it was an awful lot. The pigeon cree was behind Mr McKinney’s henhouse at 43 St Mary’s Crescent near the electric substation. We lived at no 41. Susan is the nurse on the on the right of the picture.
