My 2008 roundup and forthcoming stuff..

Well, what a year. If you're interested in reading my top ten albums and my journalistic highlights of the year, have a look at the Spiral Earth roundup: http://spiralearth.co.uk/news/topten08.asp
Make sure you read what Iain and David have to say, too - they're brilliant and have travelled the length and breadth of the country to bring the best folk news, reviews and interviews to the web.

I'm using the gorgeous festive downtime to catch up on some stuff, and plan my next moves. I've just had the privilege of interviewing children's novelist, Kate Thompson, about her fiddle playing for a future issue of Fiddle On, so be sure to look out for that. Hopefully, I'll be interviewing Dougie MacLean in the near future, too.

Merry Christmas!!
