A Lot of JoyThursday, 18 December 2008
We played at the Lot in Edinburgh last night, following a concert in An Tobar on Mull on Tuesday evening. I really enjoyed playing these gigs – both Toms were playing totally out of their skins, and that always raises the game for me. Much joy was felt on both occasions, and the Shops CD is officially open for business.
As usual the three of us had a brilliant laugh on the trip to Mull – although that may have been partly to do with hysteria induced by lack of sleep… But it was fantastic to see Gordon Maclean again (on great form as always) in Tobermory, and it felt good returning to the place it all started. Thank you Gordon. Thanks also to Adrian & Jane, and the whole team at An Tobar for all their work & support. It’s been a great journey – and it’s not over yet!
