POSSIBILITY SCREAMS AYR CENTRAL 30 MARCH 2019
I was privileged to be asked to provide music for the Earth Hour event on Sat 30th of March in Ayr Central. It was a beautiful day and the setting was almost perfect as glorious sunlight streamed through the windows lighting up the whole venue.
13 year old Emily Best kicked it off in style at midday with a stomping 6 song set of covers and one original. In her second appearance later in the day she treated the crowd to another 2 original songs and they just loved her.
Emi V Sat composed at the piano playing lush covers and a beautiful original piece called Open your eyes. I knew from the opening chords this was going to be a great song. She mixed it up with guitar as well as piano and went down a storm.
Local girl Olivia Campbell brought some friends and fans along to cheer her on as she smashed it up with her power house vocals, deft piano playing and performance. It was wonderful to hear her original material also.
Ryann Alexander lit the place up with her pure pop vocals. She had an interesting and lovely set of covers and sang the original Steal my crown with maturity beyond her years. Everyone just loved her.
All the acts played 2 sets over the day apart from last but not least… Scott Hewitt from Catching Fireflies. Sadly lead singer Kirsty MacLeod couldn’t make it so he drafted me onto vocal duty. It gave Scott and I a chance to play some new originals we have been working on. His guitar technique really shone brightly and his electric wielding axe was a delight and it was a fantastic way to end an amazing day.
4hrs of music later it was all over and the crowds that passed through just loved it. It was great to see local photographer Alistair Mulhearn and Euan Ruddick from ADN in the crowd filming and taking pictures. It was truly a day worth documenting. I am sure we will hear great things from these amazing young artists in the days to come.
March 2019 has already been an incredible month for me. The single Hope for Justice came out on the 4th feat Bernadette. Please go to www.scottnicol.us/hope for all the info.
From the 7th-18th I had the privilege of being in Houston TX. I met fantastic people, sang in amazing Churches, played 4 prisons, 1 jail, a Facebook livestream, 1 radio station, at a friend’s party and I even played in a large Medical centre. I also had time with Super Producer TBerry (Beyonce, JLo etc), which was just great. playing one song acoustically and songs from young acts that I work with. My highlight was The Carol Young Women’s Prison in Dickinson. It was just a wonderful experience that is quite hard to put into words. Wow!! I also promoted the single Hope for Justice where I could.
I was so honoured to play the new single at the large Hope for Justice Conference in Manchester 22/23rd. They do amazing work in different countries around the world rescuing victims of human trafficking. We are hosting a large fundraising event for them in New Life Church Prestwick on 18th May - more details to follow on that one.
March 30th will be a great day also with some on my young artists playing at Earth Hour Ayr Central from 11am.
No doubt the rest of 2019 will be a great adventure. Scott x
