At the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician Award Finals last week I was so impressed with our house band. They had to perform with 5 out of the 6 finalists (Jack Badcock performed solo) and remember often complicated arrangements. Needless to say they pulled them off with aplomb. It is never straightforward for these guys and they have remember pushes and pulls and stops and longs (new terms!). It’s just amazing.
So thank you to Mhairi Hall, Mike Bryan and Martin O’Neill – you are magic!!
