Kazakh Ceilidh Commando's
Well folks just returned from another amazing trip from the wonderful country of Kazakhstan. Yes the place Borat is from (high 5).
This year the oil companies had booked 5 of us to go out perform for 13 days from concerts, to schools mainly in Atyrau and Aksai with all proceeds going to the orphans. On the trip this year was Spud the piper, Martin O’Neill, Alec Dalgleish, Ewen Henderson and myself. I have not had the official figures raised between both trips but it’s estimated at over $100,000 which is fantastic and will hopefully improve the quality of life that these children have.
I should say that in between all the driving gigging and making money for the charities we did manage a wee dram or two also.
Massive thank you to Andy, Annie, Davie, and all the rest of the boys and girls that looked after us so well.
Can’t wait for next year already 🙂
