A huge thank you to Carole and Jodie from the Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai for another unforgettable trip. We stayed and played in the Grand Hyatt 6* hotel, voted last years 2nd best business hotel in the World. With the lobby on the 53rd floor and our bedrooms on the 73rd, It was quite an experience.
A massive thank you as always to Andy MacKinnon, Neil Brody and all the lads and lassies in KZ. This year saw us all fly over to Aktau and Atyrau. The final figure is not in for the money raised but if it’s anything like previous years it will be $100,000 region for both.
Can’t thank you all enough for your hard work and the opportunity to perform in such an undiscovered country to raise money for the orphans.
We brought the bells in again this year with the only street party to last the Highlands weather, in Drumnadrochit. A fantastic night and thank you very much for everyone who supported the event, withstood the cold, to the committee, and a huge thank you must go to Dola for organizing this fantastic Hogmanay from our end.
2009 was a another brilliant year for myself with amazing trips, concerts and festivals World wide. An up and down season with the shinty with injury and travels, but with a Camanachd winners medal and appointed Scotland captain, it certainly wasn’t the worst season I’ve had.
Ewan and myself releasing the new album “Shouts” was a wee highlight for the year. It was great having an album to support our music after a 4 year break from “How’s the Craic” and a huge thanks to everyone that has since bought the album.
I hope 2010 will be a fantastic year for you, and thank everyone of you for your continued support. I hope we get a blether and a bit of craic soon.
I have a few exciting projects in the pipeline so watch this space.
All the best, till we get the drams in.
