Being a self-employed musician sometimes feels like hard work. It can be stressful, hectic and a bit shaky. Most of the time, however, I can’t believe how lucky I am to get paid for doing what I love – music. I’ve just come back from a trip to Paris with Adam Sutherland where we played a gig at an event in the centre of the city. The event was held by People Make Glasgow to promote Glasgow to a group of journalists who were asked to attend the evening. Myself and Adam provided some entertainment with a couple of fiddle and piano sets.
We had a lovely evening at the event, topped off with some champagne and we were lucky enough to have the next morning free to wander around Paris before we caught our flight back to Glasgow.
