Happy New Year to you all! Hoping 2010 will be even more musically inspiring.
Well, so far, we’ve been really pleased with how the album has been received and long may this continue. Since I last posted, the album has received further airplay on BBC Radio Scotland (the Iain Anderson Show & Travelling Folk) and on BBC Radio Leicestershire (Celtic Fringe) and thanks to Martell Maxwell who also mentioned the album in her column in the Scottish Sun.
There’s a host of January dates coming up starting tonight in Glasgow, but also taking in Dunfermline, Edinburgh, Aberdeen (twice) and Inverness so hopefully I/we’ll see some of you at one of them. I’m in the process of organising some dates further afield for later in the year so will of course let you know, as and when dates are confirmed.
The album is now for sale from Coda Records on the Mound in Edinburgh and can also be downloaded from iTunes, Napster & Amazon .mp3, as well as www.simonkempston.co.uk and of course, directly from me, at all upcoming gigs. Further distribution channels will also be confirmed in due course.
Not one for being idle, work on the second album is well underway…
All the best.
