Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony

I am still absolutely buzzing after an amazing night at the Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony!! It was such an honour to be playing in the finale, which featured the wonderful Dougie MacLean’s Caledonia and Auld Lang Syne.

And yes, I got to see Kylie Minogue up close! In fact here’s a picture! If you missed it you can watch the whole show on BBC iPlayer for a few weeks.
