Right. Let's get this party started. It is the month of May, which means it is officially WHISKY MONTH! Yes, it is actually a 'thing' because Visit Scotland says it is; please click the link below.
That means the two of us have reached our busiest time of the year and due the physical and mental toll that the chaos of May actually takes on us . . . we want to talk about it!
We are preparing for a number of wonderful things this month, starting with our performance at Letham Nights this weekend with The Coal Porters. It has been some time since we have played at this absolutely wonderful event and we have longed to return all of that time because it is just so fantastic in every way. There are still tickets available for this exceptionally exciting evening of music and we invite you to click the button below to get some for yourself and all of your friends! Nobody does it quite like Michael and Roy!
Next up after that is our first and only Pledgemusic event on the 19th of May, which is none other than World Whisky Day; we are so totally excited by this whole thing because it could not have been planned for any better a day than this! As well as celebrating the water of life we have other food and drink officials in the line up! We also finally get the chance to be face to face in a lovely intimate atmosphere with some of those who have supported the crowdfunding campaign for our next album (which we have now started recording)! This event is just going to be an absolute belter and quite rightly so; we want to reward people for their support and the lucky ticket holders have a real treat in store! Check out what's happening!

A whisky-tasting session led by our dear and knowledgeable friend, Anne Dickie.

The opportunity to be a part of the live on location podcast being recorded by Fife Club.
The chance to be in a Facebook Live broadcast to celebrate World Whisky Day.
A visit from Edinburgh-based artisan HCS Jewellery and her travelling shop.
A live performance from . . . The Coaltown Daisies (whoever the heck they are).
Two tickets have become available for this otherwise sold out event due to one of our Plegders having accidentally double-booked themselves. If you would like to attend this awesome event, please get in contact with us and we can get this sorted for you right away! The tickets are £40 each and we will inform you of the venue at the time of purchase. Click here to contact us!
Although we have been successful in reaching our crowdfunding target our online rewards store will remain open until the project has been fulfilled. You can still pre-order our new album on digital, CD and vinyl formats and get discounted tickets to our album launch! There are also options to have your name credited on our album as well as receiving some extra perks; if you need something unique for a friend or family member our store items make great gifts too!

As if that wasn't enough for us to contend with . . . there's the tour. Yes, our annual 'A Whisky For The Road' tour has taken yet another turn this year by making sure we get to visit some old places as well as new! This tour also comes complete with an eight hour stint at Laphroaig Distillery; 'oaft' is a word that comes to mind. We are also delighted to be making our first visit to the Scottish Series to perform and see some boat racing on our way to our gig in Campbeltown. The tour has a lot of twists and turns and ends on an absolute high with a performance at FyneFest in Cairndow; what a perfect wee stop on the way home and to take us into June!
Don't forget that you can access our original track 'The Whisky Song' via our website so you can have the official theme song of World Whisky Day for any event you might be attending on the day; you can even download a copy of the words so you can sing along! Click here to listen! Thanks very much for reading folks and we are sorry it has been a wee while since sending out an update. Do spare a thought or six for us when we are burning the candle at both ends over the course of this entire month. To be fair though . . . we wouldn't have it any other way and are most definitely not complaining! We really look forward to sending out our next blog and until then . . . take care!
Lynzy & Vivienne The Coaltown Daisies
