About

The Prologue:



Hi! I'm a Celtic traditional songwriter.

My songs deal with love, laughter, Scotland, and Scots abroad.

My last two albums, Land and Sea and The Barren Fig, were hailed by the critics, but have, unaccountably, failed to provide me with a retirement fund! 

My next album - In Praise of Crows - is written, and almost finished recording.

If you become my patron, this will help me get it, and future albums, pressed and distributed, pay musicians, and finance future projects. Be a part of the art!

Here's the Pitch!

Anything you can manage, from $2 upwards, is welcome.

The 12 biggest donors will each have a dedication on CD covers and all donors will be listed and thanked on my website.
I'll also post any corporate logo and link online to make donations tax-deductible.

Donors will get CDs free (inc. shipping!)  if they donate $10 or more/month,
or if they donate for at least 4 months.

Once CDs are pressed and printed, I will list donors' names on the Shop page of my website.

I also promise reduced prices for any gigs I organise. The same deals will apply to future releases.
