venues across the UK throughout the summer, starting with three main dates in their
home and study cities; Edinburgh, Newcastle and Glasgow.
9 July Donald Anderson
Donald Anderson is a singer and songwriter who lives in Shetland. He has released two cds, Waterhead Sky and In Passing and has performed regularly in Shetland (and less regularly outside Shetland) over the last twenty years, both as a solo performer and with his band. His folk club sets combine original material, traditional ballads and contemporary songs, with some humour thrown in for good measure.

tell her stories of the sea and Island life.
