“Nae Plans is a musical project full of spontaneity and magical moments. A brilliant concept that puts the audience at the centre of an energetic, dynamic, electrifying and above all live performance. These are two Scottish folk musicians of the highest calibre and the their no fear attitude to the evolution of traditional music keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. Brilliant!”  John Somerville, Musician/Composer/Teacher

Nae Plans Workshops and Gig – St. Andrews
Thu 12th March 2015

If you would like to reserve tickets for the gig and/or workshop, please email  The gig is £8 or just £6 for students (if you can present an old T-shirt that smells of burnt toast as proof on entry). The workshop is very reasonably priced at £5! Workshops are open to players from multiple genres of acoustic music.

St. Andrews University Student Union, 1.30pm-2.30pm.
Designed for the tune players, Adam will explore harmonic ideas to help guide you to finding your own melodic style and rhythmic approach. Highly informative, inspiring, totally zen and extremely uplifting for the soul!

St. Andrews University Student Union, 1.30pm-2.30pm.
Running simultaneously with Adam’s workshop, Hamish’s class is designed for the chordal accompaniment players and rhythm players. This will not be dull. Within the space of 1 hour Hamish will teach you about chords, modes and groove through a method that is, quite frankly, astoundingly clear. EUREKA!

St. Andrews University Student Union, 3pm-4pm
Everyone that attended the 1.30pm workshops will come together in one giant class to make music that will defy the boundaries of folk, Western classical, and the outer reaches of jazz as we know it. Expect tears of joy.

Boys Brigade Hall, doors 7pm, starts 7.30pm.
Hamish and Adam take to the stage for a completely unplanned, unarranged and terrifyingly unhinged setlist – a rollercoaster of a ride!

Nae Plans is hitting the road in 2014!

IMG_4149wThe live performances are consistent with the ‘Nae Plans’ ethos and are therefore very daring but also very liberating. Audiences can experience creativity at the moment of conception and enjoy the outstanding and thrilling musical intuition of two of Scotland’s foremost musicians. The live performances display a kind of electricity and excitement by the off-the-cuff nature and highlight every nuance. As they allow themselves the freedom to experiment,  ‘Nae Plans’ becomes ‘Nae limits’.


Tuesday 29th April 2014, 8pm-11pm

@ Leith Folk Club
Clarke Suite, Victoria Park Hotel, 221 Ferry Rd, Edinburgh, Lothian, EH64NN

Nae Plans launched in Edinburgh and then Glasgow in December, featuring the premiere of the ‘Folkumentary’ by Somhairlie Macdonald, interviews about the project with David Francis and Simon Thoumire, respectively, and a live set from the boys.
