Supporting The Peatbog Faeries

I know I’m posting this just hours before the actual gig but I just wanted to share with you what Zoë’s up to.

This is going to be a fantastic gig and a great opportunity for Zoë. Have you ever seen the Peatbog Faeries? I haven’t but I’ve heard loads about them and it promises to be a hoot. The Peatbogs have twice been voted “Best Live Act” at the Scottish Traditional Folk Awards

Zoë’s good friend, Calum Gilligan is also supporting so we’re also looking forward to catching up with him too.

Singing For My Supper

Following on from a couple of REALLY busy weekends, I was looking forward to a quiet one when my Mum got a facebook message:

“Would Zoe like to sing in the streets of Dumfries tomorrow?”

A little bit of an odd request, but it was all part of The Big Burn’s Supper – you can read more about that by following the link, but I got involved by singing (just me and my uke) on a Saturday afternoon to unsuspecting shoppers in the middle of Dumfries.

I was a little unsure at first but ended up having a great time. I started off outside but it was so cold I couldn’t feel my fingers so my Mum, who’s a hero by the way, spoke to the management of the indoor shopping centre and we got permission for me to perform in the warm.

I really enjoyed myself and I got loads of compliments from people of all ages and was even interviewed by a local radio station.

We gave a lift to my talented, musical friend Calum, who was also asked to perform, but he braved the freezing temperatures and stayed outside for about two hours. A huge gold star to Calum.

You should really check out Calum’s facebook page too, he really is very good.

We finished off the day with a bag of chips each and a lovely cup of tea at Calum’s parent’s (Our good friends Cathy & Liam)

So, overall it was a great day, not the quiet one I was expecting, but a wonderful one with some fab memories.


Zoë x
