    Good for him.

    He's a very nice lad and this can can only help the mandolin in Scotland and everywhere else.

    Watched his performance on Alba programme, Dagger, and he is a very versatile young performer. Great for widening awareness of the mandolin in our music, as you say. Super backing trio too, including Jenn Butterworth on guitar.. they were there for any of the performers who wanted to have them in support.

    Great tune, and nice to see mandolins playing.
    Here’s the TAB, though I’m sure a lot of you guys already have it by ear!

    Calum's from Westhill just outside Aberdeen.
    I've seen several of his videos in the past but not knowingly encountered him in a session.
