The Fiddle Festival starts! Chris came over from the west and came to the opening concert with us; we went to the Southern Bar in Edinburgh to eat, and they had reserved the table in a rather grand way! The concert was excellent – Snuffbox supporting Graham Mackenzie and his band. We had heard both Charlie Stewart (Snuffbox fiddler) and Graham Mackenzie before at the Young Traditional Musician of the Year concerts at Celtic Connections over the years.

An appropriate bottle label!
