Featured in the Clydebank Post

Added on Thursday 10 Dec 2009

My mum phoned to tell me that I'm featured in the local newspaper, The Clydebank Post. :-) The article is about the gig in Old Kilpatrick on Monday; a gig to raise money for a memorial garden for the people who have taken their lives by jumping from the Old Kilpatrick bridge.

These gigs are being organised by Ann Morgon; Anne's partner Hamish took his own life a number of years ago. The song, 'You can't catch the butterfly' - which you can hear on my Myspace player - was written by myself and Pat at Anne's request - to be played at the fundraising concerts.

If we can figure out how to do it - the plan is also to release it as a single with profits going towards the memorial garden. If you have expertise in this area and would like to help get in touch.

All the best,
