"Merry Xmas everyone
I hope you are in good health and looking forward to the upcoming festivities? Just dropping by to pass on all of the latest news from Camp Horse!!! :o)
DVD - It has been a long time coming but for the first time in my career we have filmed one of the summer shows. This is very much due to San Kapil, Potter and their team who talked me into this and with hindsight....I am so glad that they did! It isn’t a huge production, but I feel that it captures what was an amazing night for us in Edinburgh this year. The venue is the Queens Hall, Edinburgh - a favourite venue for me (I won a Forth award for best performance there in the past) I hope to have it available around the end of Jan time and possibly available pre order in the next week or so. The pre-order section will be set up in the shop area on www.randan.org so that you can place an order at the very least if you wish? There’s a feature bit at the end with a wee interview with me and the band too!
Single - "Something Wicked", from "Coming Up for Air", is going out as a single download on Jan 1st (01 01 10!). This will be a radio edit of the song. The more downloads the better so maybe we can start a campaign? Anyone interested in being part of a teamhorsestreetteam let me know? We need people in all parts of the country...the planet!
Video - "Something Wicked" ... we began filming the vid for this track on Fri 11th Dec here in Glasgow - I have a very special guest appearing in it and I am so thrilled – as was our star guest apparently - the one and only Lorraine Kelly! She was so fabulous and great fun, nothing phased her – what a day I was so happy I could have fainted! Lorraine and her equally lovely hubby Steve spent a good part of the day with us. This could be the difference between getting it seen on a wider scale or not. The band and I filmed our bits in Halifax and the finished video will be live by 11th Jan. Fingers crossed that Lorraine puts a wee clip on the LK today show
"Coming Up for Air" - Finally this, my 8th album, will have an official release date!
Applestore - Thurs 21st Jan 2010, Buchanan St Glasgow Special performance in Glasgow to flag up both the single and the upcoming Celtic Connection show and the subsequent tour that follows....
L Beach - 16th April 2010 Hamburg First womens fest in Hamburg. www.l-beach.com probably a solo appearance
Website (Twitter, Facebook) My sites are currently being updated. Any comments as to what you would like to see on these is most welcome. The new version of www.randan.org will be live in the next few days.
"The Same Sky" - 2010 is the 20th anniversary of this first popular album. I hope to mark it by performing the album in it’s entirety on the day of the anniversary – 6th Nov and possibly key venues in the UK
As ever thank you for supporting me. I really do appreciate it. I am looking forward to the new dates coming up in 2010. Take care of yourselves – Happy new Year see you next year I hope?
Finally I hope you have a very happy xmas and a merry new year!
