Carla J. Easton

TeenCanteen’s singer and songwriter Carla J. Easton is looking forward to the Doune the Rabbit Hole festival more than most.

Randolph’s Leap

Voyage to the Isle of Love (with Adam Ross)

Much-travelled of late, Adam Ross is closer to home territory. Elgin, to be precise, close(ish) to where he grew up, in Nairn.

Aidan and Hubby join the young team

Moffat and Hubbert on sex and death (and quantum physics)
