Parliament Building

Scottish Parliament Visit

Attended an enjoyable artsy evening at the Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh, on Wednesday 24 June, celebrating sense of place in Scotland, based on the Placebook Scotland social networking/blog/photo-video sharing site I contribute to with poetry and photos. Introduced by Andrew Welsh MSP, the artists included:- Talented father and daughter folk singers from Perth, a good ceilidh band trio, Robin Harper of the Greens did well on acoustic guitar and singing, other talented contributors including a prose/poetry reading extracts of his. Well attended and sociable, with canapes and quality red/white wine (water and soft drinks also). The building itself divides opinion but I like its appearance/design, wood finishes and roofing, granite and flagstone flooring, quirky design and original art displays.

Congratulations - The Ting Tings & Duffy

Congratulations to my favourite music acts of 2008: The Ting Tings and Duffy, for their Ivor Novello songwriting/music performance awards this week. Well deserved. Expecting big things from hotly-tipped, talented synth-pop artiste Little Boots 'Stuck On Repeat' etc, as well as La Roux, 'Going In For The Kill'.

By the way, my quiz team Hilltown Writers won the Highwayman YCC quiz again, lifting the cup for the 3rd time in a row; good hat-trick, should get the trophy engraved!
