...but welcome Jenna Reid, fantastic young Shetland fiddler who will be taking Clare's place in the line-up. Her first gig is in Genoa, Italy on 24 July. Jenna will be playing with the band for all of their forthcoming Scottish gigs during August, September and October.

The new Whitbread Prize Winner, Philip Pullman, is asked "What has been your most memorable holiday?"

He replied: "We went to Lake Bled in Slovenia a few years ago and found ourselves at a folk music festival with a great Scottish band called Deaf Shepherd. Travel should be about coming across the unexpected and their style of bagpipe playing certainly qualified"

We don't know if that's an insult or a compliment?!
