The Press and Journal’s Scott Begbie has done a historical piece on Stonehaven’s old Ship to Shore Radio Station from it’s role in World War 2 and the Piper Alpha tragedy. He spoke with some of the folk that used to work there as a working ship to shore radio station, including my Uncle Gordon Reid and Ally Taylor.
He also talks about it’s future as a brewery for Six Degrees North Brewery in Stonehaven.
I was interviewed for my input on my 2010 song ‘Stonehaven Radio Station and Me’ and touched on my upcoming (comeback) single ‘Where The Ships Go To Die’.
Please give it a read. It’s a wonderful piece.

We are delighted to announce that Doricana Fest are partnering with Mackies of Scotland for our first festival. It’s an honour to share the stage with one of Scotland’s finest family businesses.
Also, there’s been a lot of press and publicity regarding our little cow experiment up at Mackies too. I’ve been up to visit the dairy cows to perform a few acoustic songs for them. Also, they’ve been listening to my two albums on a non stop loop for a few weeks. The milk yield during this period of time will be noted and we shall find out if ‘Country Music’ (Doricana) improves milk yield in dairy cows…….watch this space!
As for tickets to Doricana:

Thanks for all the support

Colin will be performing songs from his critically acclaimed albums Doricana & The Never Ending Pageant at an intimate homecoming gig in Stonehaven on the 29th April at Zee’s nightclub. The last solo show he played there was when he opened for The Red Hot Chilli Pipers at the open air at the square in 2012.
Tickets are going fast for this special show and are available at Ma Simpson’s music shop or online here.
Local up and coming singer songwriter Alannah Moar will open the show.
I’ll be heading back to the Acoustic Music Centre (St Brides) in Edinburgh for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This will be my 4th or 5th Fringe festival.
I’m performing on the 20th August 2016. All details and tickets are available here:
Unfortunately, the Big Country gigs in Dublin & Belfast (I was due to open) have been pulled due to ill health with the promoter (and friend Charlie Campbell).
My Irish tour will remain and we’ll be working very hard towards finding replacement shows in both Cities.
Sorry for the last minute issues but I’m sure you’ll all join me in wishing Charlie the best in his recovery.
