Spotlight Sessions


I was very happy to hear last year that my show 'The sea and Me' had received a place as one of the supported shows with The Rural Touring network. This meant that I would have been performing a segment of my show in April this year at The Gathering on the Isle of Skye to various promoters in order to sell and then tour the show in 2021. Due to C19 the event was cancelled, however, the team at The Rural Touring Network have worked hard to come up with an alternative and alongside that have created a crowdfunder campaign #KeepRuralArtsLive.

The Spotlight Sessions are at 8pm on Thursday the 20th August, I will be featured on a live stream alongside two other performers on The Rural Touring Networks facebook page. For a night of entertainment compared by playwright, novelist and performer Alan Bissett. The second event will be held on the 27th of August.

Edit: You can now view a recording of my segment for the live event on the project page.
