There are new tour dates on the tour page.  We will be touring the new album in selected venues in Scotland and England in October with the five piece band - myself, Éamon Doorley, Duncan Chisholm, Tony Byrne and Martin O'Neill - it promises to be loads of fun, let us know if you can manage to come along to join in the craic and hear our new set.

Transatlantic Sessions Series 4 started on BBC Scotland just last night and will be showing also on BBC 4 soon too.  Keep an eye on our Twitter/Myspace/Facebook pages for details of what we are up to or just to read the random ramblings and musings. Make friends too!

OK better sign off for now - we have put up three preview tracks in the site here with more to go up on our myspace etc in the coming days.  We will also have some film footage and other exciting new things coming to the website before release so keep popping back to see what's new.  Oh - PS there are a few funky new tee shirts and bags in the store too. Happy shopping :o)

Take care of yourselves,

Love

Julie x
