Buy Scottish traditional music photos
I’ve been taking traditional music photos at a wide range of events for a number of years. One thing that has become evident to me is that there’s a large number of individuals and small organisations putting on events across the country. Many don’t have easy access to good quality photos for publicising those events. I’m now in the process of putting together a library of digital images, which are available to buy at a reasonable price. Any of these images can be used for the purpose of promoting Scotland and Scottish culture.
I’ll be adding to the photo library over time, with pictures of ceilidhs, song and music workshops, step dancing, pub sessions, gigs and concerts, as well as a wide variety of traditional musical instruments and musicians.
If you are organising, or know of an event where I would be able to take photos to add to the library, please get in touch.
The full collection of Scottish traditional music photos are available to view on the Photography Scotland website shop pages.

The Scots Fiddle Festival will be back again for its 16th year on the 25th-27th November. It promises more fiddling than you can shake a stick at, with concerts, talks, recitals workshops, ceilidhs, sessions, open stage, festival club…and a fiddle walk around Edinburgh. How do they fit all that into one weekend?

This year the Festival has moved to a new home, and will be based mainly in the Queen’s Hall, with some events in the nearby Kings Hall, and ceilidhs in the South Halls. Be prepared for a few extras this year – there’s a Gaelic workshop and a step dancing workshop squeezed into the programme, on top of all that fiddle playing. Dust down your instruments and get along for a weekend of fun, frivolity, friendship, festivities…oh…and full-on stint of fiddling too!

I seem to have a blog blip – for some reason lots of folk can’t view the last post, so here’s another one to see if it was just a temporary hitch.
This was one of those lovely photography moments when it all comes together just when the camera was out!

The map has been created by the Edinburgh Bike Station, and has been launched as an interactive online map, which members of the public can contribute to. I’ve been volunteering on the project, and am looking forward to blogging from around the Innertube network over the coming months.
