Denmark and Sweden tour

We (Cairdeas) had a a great time in skagen and Lidkoping playing at the festivals there. All the gigs were extremely enjoyable (even the 10 am one). Loved playing in the large venue at Skagen in front of a big crowd. Both Carlos Nunez and the Chieftains and their respective bands were extremely nice to work with and made me feel very welcome. Much appreciated.

Looking forward to playing with the Carlos Nunez Band and the Chieftains at the Sunday concert, on 3rd July at Skagen Festival, Should be a great night. I'm looking forward to hearing Dougie MacLean there too!
