Introducing Witches Brew 

More recently I have been performing regularly with harpist and fellow singer/songwriter Pauline Vallance, as the duo 'Witches Brew'. We formed in November 2012 after we collaborated on the song 'Spirit of Lochwinnoch' written by local playwright and author Franzeska Ewart. We discovered a mutual love of Scottish and Irish traditional song, rich harmonies, quirky arrangements and songwriting skills. Witches Brew has performed at the Star Folk Club, Houston Folk Club, Danny Kyle Open Stage at Adelaide's in Glasgow and the Speigle Tent Paisley, and local venues during Lochwinnoch Arts Festival; where we recently supported Largs Gaelic Choir.

We are looking forward to more performances using a variety of instruments including;  guitar, flute, bazouki, clarsach and a range of traditional and modern African instruments.
