My 2016 Music Review

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

2016 has been a pretty dodgy year in many respects, but not in gigs for me … another good one! Aurora at the Art School in Glasgow stands out among some pretty special ones. I wasn’t expecting to be so blown away, but it was an unforgettable show by a very promising artist. Anaïs Mitchell at the County Hotel, Selkirk was also very special.

Not such a great albums year for me, my most played was ‘The Woods‘ by Sleater-Kinney from 2005! But again it was Aurora who impressed most with the brillliant ‘All Of My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend‘ … tremendous.
