From German Pressfest to OrangeFest 2016

2016 has been an eventful year so far and not likely to get boring anytime soon. Recently I performed at a festival in Dortmund, Germany on July 1st to 3rd. That’s right, exactly one hundred years after the slaughter at the Battle of the Somme. The UZ- Pressefest was brilliant and our Ulster-Scots style music was warmly received by the thousands of festival goers – mostly Germans. The Lambeg Drum was of course a particular curiosity.
