Happy Rabbie Burns Day! 

This time of year, I’d usually be out on the tartan trail addressing the haggis and singing Burns’ songs in celebration of Scotland’s famous poet and song collector.  Sadly, things are a little different these days.  However, I am looking forward to being part of an online Burns concert with some great Scottish artists like Boo Hewerdine, Iona Fyfe & Archie McAllister happening this Thursday 28th Jan at 3pm EST (8pm if you are in the UK).  It’s all part of a fundraiser for a great charity called Refuweegee.  Find out more and how to register for the concert here

It’s been fun doing private online concerts.  We are all set up and ready to rock right into your home.  It’s a powerful experience to watch families and friends come together and all of us meet in the music. But hey, don’t take my word for it, here’s feedback from someone who experienced it from the other side of the screen! 

“What a fantastic idea to have your own private LIVE concert from the comfort of your own living room during these difficult times. Our concert linked 4 family households and all participants (22-74 yrs old!) loved the selection of the music and the ease of flow of the evening. There were some original Leask masterpieces as well as some sing-a-long favourites where we could all join in. The beauty of this concert medium, is that each one is unique. Live music is just what we needed! Can’t wait to book the next one!” ~ P. McArthur

Music in these strange and strained times can feel like a friend who can comfort and encourage. I believe I have songs that can sing into many different spaces and I want to be able offer that to as many people as possible.  I have a FREE sampler that might have some songs you don’t have yet, so help yourself. And if you have a friend who you think might enjoy my music, please forward the FREE sampler link where they can join my Email newsletter, get 6 free songs and keep tabs on my musical musings. 

Glad you’re here.
