Tidelines and Byres Rd Festival


The last few days have been fun. It started on Friday night when I chaired an event called Banned Books with Claire Gray and ‘Nippy Nora’ at the Tidelines Festival.

Just before kick off at Banned Books

An hour later I was chairing the ‘encyclopedic’ Stuart Cosgrove, talking about his trilogy of books that examine the social history of America and the rise of soul music across the years 1967, 68 and 69. A great event.

On the Saturday I headed for the Byres Rd Book Festival to appear with my three other cohorts and our ‘Four Blokes in Search of a Plot’ panel.
