Spring GIGS & MAY TOUR - Come join us..

Jo Philby

We have been busy & already sung & played in Melness, Struy & Ullapool during April!

We have been enjoying ourselves with two weekends away already in April sharing our music in some stunning locations in the Highlands amongst such lovely Folk. So lovely to meet up with friends & folk who follow our music with some surprises along the way. That is why we love doing what we do. Music is such an uplifting & rewarding pastime...

My third album is under way & we hope it will be ready for release sometime during the summer. Because it is such a creative process we are taking our time over it as we want it to be just right & reflect the songs I love to sing & Elaine play. The album will also feature for the first time some of our own songs which is very exciting! We are recording with local musician Stewart Shearer who will also be adding some of his musical talents. Stay tuned here & on our Facebook page for updates..
