The Jiggers, (Bigdaymusic's main Scottish Ceilidh Band) is really busy at the moment, playing upwards of twenty ceilidhs a month around Scotland. Most of those ceilidhs are Scottish weddings. I guess summer is popular for weddings because of the fact that you have more daylight, nice weather for the wedding photographer, the possibility of maybe an outdoor drinks reception... But sometimes the Scottish weather has other plans...
Big Day Music, the live music agency, has musicians playing at a wedding in Arran today. Reports suggest that Ayrshire is getting thunderstorms right now.Eek! (While I write this, the rain here in Glasgow has just started. Big-time.) There's a saying that if you can see Arran from Ayr, then it's about to rain. And if you can't see Arran from Ayr, then it IS raining.
Meanwhile, I'll be playing at a Gleneagles Hotel event this evening, possibly in an outdoor marquee. If you don't hear from me soon, presume I was struck by lightning.
