Welcome

I'm a Scottish singer-songwriter and sacred musician, now living on the West coast of America.  These songs are my soul's way of making sense of the beauty, vulnerability and endless richness of this human life. It's a gift and a pleasure to share them with you.

The community boat project, Lower Hadlock Road, Port Hadlock

This event will be the second concert on the theme of courage & facing ones fear played from the cockpit of the Felicity Ann.

Aimee and I are very much looking forward to playing onboard the Felicity Ann (the boat sailed by the first woman to singlehand the Atlantic). The workshop where the Felicity Ann lives is unheated so dress warm and perhaps bring a comfy chair too. Come and enjoy the stories, songs and celebration.

A large percentage of the proceeds will be given to two local charities that work with transgender youth:

The Felicity Ann &

LGBTQ+ Legislative Theatre Youth Project.

Tickets $15 on the door with no-one being turned away for lack of funds.

To get to the community boat project turn left as you go down the hill towards Ajax (if you get to the Ajax cafe you've gone too far). Take the dirt road on the left immediately after the apartment buildings. Drive up the hill, go through the gate and you'll see our huge colorful workshop.

Once again, dress warm because the workshop is a cold. Hot beverages and soup will be provided.

Film screening: Funny Kinda Guy

Rosewind common house, 3131 Haines St, Port Townsend

A few people have asked me to show my film again! So here your second chance.

ALL ARE WELCOME: $1 donation for non Rosewind residents.

Did you know I was a movie star? Okay, not quite - but you really are welcome to join me for the screening of this award-winning documentary about my gender change and the subsequent process of losing my alto singing voice.

The film was first released in 2005 and even won an international award, but it has pretty much slipped into obscurity in recent years. In Scotland they screen it as part of LGBTI History month! I don't normally think of myself as old but in transgender terms I suppose I am.

This film was very well received by folkies as well as by the queer community, since it's very much about my journey as a musician as well as a trans man. I almost never screen it - this is the only time I'm planning on doing it in PT, so please tell people who might be interested.

It is my hope that this documentary isn't just about me, that instead it speaks for all of us as we struggle and succeed to live with authenticity and truth.

The film lasts for about 75 mins, then we'll have a question and answer session afterwards - with a few songs chucked in there too.
