Home Alone

This weekend we should have been celebrating Jack’s birthday at The Ben Nevis in Glasgow on our way to gigs in Fort William, Glencoe and on The Isle of Skye. We’re fortunate that we’re all home, safe and well.

While we’ve been home, we wrote a new tune and sent it round to the other band members. Around the same time, Angie revealed that she knows how to do those videos with lots of separate windows of people playing together (you know – the ones where one girl appears, singing all the parts…).

So, here’s the result!

In Ireland, the elderly and vulnerable are being “cocooned”, so that’s where the title comes from and this one’s dedicated to Frank Ekstrom, just outside Dundalk, cocooned with his dog Tojo.

We’ll do some more work on arranging this as soon as we’re able to get together, and we’ll gig it a few times to see if it works live.

All the best from Leather’o in the meantime – keep well and see you soon!

Update

Like most musicians and performers, we are cancelling all our gigs for the foreseeable future. We have several in the diary later in the year, so hopefully the situation will be back to normal by then.

In the meantime, we’re thinking about doing some recording and working on some new tunes.

Please continue to support the professional musicians you love to listen to – their income will drop drastically, just as the festival season was about to start.

Keep well, do the right thing and see you all soon!
