Last week was a roller coaster for those of us involved in the song-writing community and it seems that we could be fastening our belts for the next white-knuckle ride as soon as #paywhatsduetube starts trending on twitter. So if you are reading this, please look out for it.
I first heard the song ‘Lord Franklin’ when Nick Keir and Tony Ireland played it on a Highlands & Islands tour I did with the folk rock band Finn MacCuill in a show called ‘ Envoys & Exiles’ for Pitlochry Festival Theatre in the early years of my music career.
One thing that nobody can argue with is the fact that the Entertainment Industry is unpredictable. Things happen and they are not always good.
Every so often a great show comes along that shakes you out of your comfort zone and takes you on an unexpected journey back into your past.
