I perform at many Fiddlers' Rallies and am fortunate to be able to count the members of Dunfermline Strathspey & Reel Society as friends.Here we are, pictured during a concert at the Rothes Halls, Glenrothes, Fife. 15th January 2000.

I was delighted to be included in the line up for the Glenfarg Folk Feast, not least because it gave me the chance to meet up with my friends from Yorkshire, "Artisan," who are internationally known for their wonderful songs, a capella harmony, and humour. 15th April 2000.

Encore time with Harvey Andrews and Isla St. Clair at a concert in Gnosall School Hall, Staffordshire. Harvey is one of England's finest writers, and Isla is a well-known television presenter and singer from the northeast of Scotland. 9th June 2000.

I'd seen and been involved in "Song Writers In The Round" in Nashville and suggested to the Path Tavern in Kirkcaldy that we could do something similar. Three other writers from different musical backgrounds took the stage that night with me. It's always a pleasure to see Al Hughes and Michael Marra work but the biggest thrill for me was to see the show stolen by my son, Rich Davies! 15th July 2000.

In the UK and, I would guess, in much of the USA, The Bluebird Cafe may not mean much. However, to songwriters, it's the place to see and be seen. I first played at there at an "open mic" night and was honoured to be asked back to perform twice. This picture was taken on my third visit, on October 1st 2000.

As a solo performer, chances to work with other musicians are an all too rare pleasure. When we were recording Climb Your Mountain for the Somewhere Down The Road album, I was overjoyed to be able to enlist the vocal talents of Stuart Duncan, who also engineered the album, Sandra Davies, my wife, Jim Malcolm one of Scotland's foremost singer/songwriters and, at that time, a member of Old Blind Dogs, Gillian Murray, one of the most versatile stage and session singers I know (and happens to be married to Stuart) and Gerry McFarlane, who was singing on this occasion, but usually plays the difficult guitar parts I can only dream of! Wow, what a team! January 2001.

Photographed at our wedding reception. Sandra and I were lucky enough to be surrounded by many great musical friends (professional and amateur) that day and we started the session with a few songs. February 8th 2004.

Hardly a gig goes by without me acknowledging my debt and gratitude to the greatest of my songwriting heroes, Tom Paxton. It's great when you find that your heroes are not only great at their craft but are wonderful people, too. Tom's the best! Here we are with him in Glasgow, February 24th 2005.

Another favourite gig for me is as guest singer at Fiddlers' Rallies. Here I am with my friends from The Dunfermline Strathspey and Reel Society, at The Rothes Halls, Glenrothes. January 14th 2006.
