my name is hamish and i went to bill and megan's greenock venue. made me long to see and hear them play again. there was a lovely appreciative feel in the hall - scottish audiences are quite restrained when they are sober, or sober when they are restrained! but i can tell you no one missed out on what a privilege and a delight it is to experience those years of skill conveyed in that warm relaxed and friendly way.
bill will have to practice his scottish pronounciation of 'curly' as in 'curly q slide'. just open your throat bill and say it somwhere back and down about your rib cage!
best wishes and many greatful thanks.
