Style: Scottish Folk Blues
Influences: Elmore James
The “College of Piping” at Otago Street where I learned to play my first instrument (the pipes), “Wintersgills” on Great Western Road where I played my 1st jam sessions, “Bo Bar” formerly Studio One (home of the Glasgow Blues scene) where I played some of my first gigs and then years later hosted the Sun Jam session with Jim Ward.
The location in the photograph is “Websters Theatre” in Byres Road. This is a cracking venue with a great feel to it. It’s an old church that is currently being renovated and is one of the many venues in the West End of Glasgow that I have a connection with.
