November 2017 - News from Butterstone

Before anything else…take a minute and book now for Dougie’s special concert on Wednesday 24th January in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall during Celtic Connections 2018! Tickets are selling fast and we have a feeling it’s going to be a very special night. Here's a link for buying tickets 

We’ve had a truly great run of concerts over the last few months…from 4 sold out concerts in the north east USA to sell-outs at the the Cornwall Festival in Wadebridge and the Banbury Festival in Oxfordshire, England. Then came our great concerts in Scotland from Findhorn and Strathpeffer in the north to New Galloway in the borders via Falkirk, Greenock, Paisley, Milngavie and ending in Cairndow, Loch Fyne! All fantastic audiences and really moving experiences.
