Scotland v Czech Republic Playlist and The Southern Gatherin'

Very busy weekend at Woosh Entertainments.  Rugby, Football, Athletics and the inaugural Southern Gatherin' Music Festival.

Let's start with the football!  Happy to admit that was the lowest I've ever felt after a sporting event.  Ironically, in the match day programme there was an interview with Graeme and myself about the role we play on match days.  I'd been at pains to mention that I don't get caught up in the excitement and try to remain focused.  Well when Darren Fletcher scored even I was out my seat (before checking if the goal had been disallowed for offside, then hitting play on 500 Miles!) 

On Friday was honoured to be asked to record an intro for Real Radio Scotland's pre-match "An Hour of Scotland" show on Saturday.  Scotland players past and present, fans, and some special guests were asked to pick the tune that they love to hear when Scotland play. I chose Gun!

After the drama of the football I headed to Peebles for the inaugural Southern Gatherin' Music Festival.   A line up of over 20 bands playing, free, in The Bridge Inn and The Courthouse.  The festival was the brainchild of Andy Tucker and, in his own inimitable style, he gathered together a quite superb array of talent to play over the weekend. 

Some great performances and it would be wrong to single out any of the bands for special praise.  If you are a music fan then I'd suggest heading over to Spotify and listen to some of the acts on this playlist.
