Alistair McCulloch Collection Volume 2
My second tunebook is currently being typeset and will be released late this year. The collection will feature 40 new original tunes with chord symbols together with harmony lines for many of the tunes. The book will also contain a section on fiddle ornamentation as well as links to additional features such as larger scale arrangements of selected tunes and performance clips.

Gregg Violin
In January 2015 the National Trust for Scotland kindly allowed me to perform on the Gregg Violin which was played by Robert Burns. The instrument, which is normally housed at the Burns Museum in Alloway was restored in 1996 after having been discovered in Mauchline. William Gregg was the dancing master at the Bachelors Club in Tarbolton where Burns was a regular. I had the honour of playing the instrument as part of the Alloway 1759 celebrations and also as part of the Celtic Connections festival 2015.

USA 2015
Delighted to be returning to the USA this summer to perform at a dance camp in New England, followed by four concerts.
