2018 Round-Up: In Creative Mode

I’m afraid it’s in my genes: my father was a musician, and my mother is a gifted seamstress. So what do I do for relaxation? I arrange or compose tunes, and I sew.  It’s an absolutely essential outlet for me.

MUSICAL CREATIVITY

I arrange Scottish tunes for small ensembles, and occasionally write songs with a folk influence. Find my tunes on Sheet Music Plus, or as Finale renditions on SoundCloud.  In 2019, I aspire to more tunes and (definitely) more live performances!

Arrangements

  • The lone wanderer
  • Nora’s vow – wind trio, or for voice, flute and treble recorder
  • The twa corbies

Originals

  • David Middleton goes to Aviemore – a set of tunes
  • For the Guild – a set of tunes
  • Jackdaw Jo, a ballad – voice, flute, violin, piano
  • My foot has gone to sleep – a set of tunes

SEWING

Also by way of relaxation, I sew – my own clothes, patchwork, and occasionally whimsical toys or wallhangings.  Here are some highlights from 2018:-
