Aberfeldy's Christmas Cracker
'Denial'-Aberfeldy ABC2 Glasgow 22nd Dec.2008
Aberfeldy were excellent last week at Glasgow's ABC, ably supported by The Husseys, but it was at the Voodoo Rooms where they excelled. Another special mention for their support act, The Gillyflowers, who were very good indeed and I predict we will all be hearing lots more from Kirsten and co next year.

As for Aberfeldy, well, they never cease to amaze me. Riley's new songs are so good and sit comfortably with Aberfeldy classics of old. Murray, Kenneth and Chris were solid as ever and Vicky and Lorna provided seamless harmonies on all songs as well as some neat fiddle and keyboards. Riley was on excellent form and all in all it was Aberfeldy back to their very best.

Edinburgh's Hogmanay is coming up and what a start this year with the Torchlight Procession last night. Bigger than ever with fantastic fireworks and intriguing characters up on Calton Hill. Tonight is the dancin' in the Grassmarket and then of course the 'big one' on Hogmanay - can't wait!
