...Findlay Napier!

This little gem just popped into my Inbox! A wee while ago I posted about the first ever Hazy Recollections afternoon in Glasgow showcasing some of the finest 'nu-folk' acts in the country. With another in the pipeline at Stereo on Easter Sunday, Findlay Napier (one half of the brains behind the event) and The Bar Room Mountaineers are offering new single "Raise A Glass" for free by signing up to their mailing list at

"It’s the eight thirty commute, the four thirty clock-watch, the stream of pointless meetings, management reshuffles and training days. ‘Raise a Glass’ is the mantra for the burned out office drone. The over-commuted, under paid, over looked and shuffled under soldiers of the workplace."

Well worth getting your hands on this "rousing anthem" folks. Here's the tour details...

6 Mar - The Blackstairs Lounge, Wick
7 Mar - Hootenanny, Inverness
11 Mar - The Acoustic Music Club, Kirkcaldy (solo)
4 Apr - HAZY RECOLLECTIONS at Stereo, Glasgow (2pm Start)
10 Jun - Arran Folk Festival, Brodick

Didn't manage to make it along to the first Hazy Recollections in January but from what I hear it could well be a regular on the Glasgow music scene. Seems wise to get in on the act early!
