Had great gig in Portsoy, up on the Banffshire coast – very beautiful fishing village with an ancient harbour. The venue is called the Salmon Bothy, a lovely old building, used as a museum and arts centre. I snapped the stage area to show you the fantastic knitted mural depicting the old harbour. The concert went well and I played my first ever trumpet solo in public. Ive been learning it as a New Year’s resolution! Thanks to Bob and the crew for organising and to all those who attended.
“The land of the golden and the green” a snap of ‘Valley of Strathmore’ on the way home with field of ripe corn waiting to be cut. The journey home from Portsoy was really like driving through the pages of a song book.
