Where are you from/where do you live?
I live in Stornoway.
How did you get involved in the festival?
I am married to Martin Jones one of the festival directors, and it is through him that I first got involved in selling merchandise at the festival. In the early days it was just me with a table at the side of the white tent – I remember thinking it was a big upgrade the first year I had my own market stall – and now we have a whole tent, and a team of people as well.
Why do you do it/What makes HebCelt special for you?
Festival Week sees the whole of Stornoway coming alive and there is a real buzz in the air, which makes it really special.
What's your best memory over the years?
My best memory is from many years ago, sitting on the festival green one warm evening listening to the band – then realizing we had promised the babysitter we would be home 2 hours ago!
What band has been your highlight of HebCelt?
There have been many excellent bands over the years, Baka Beyond and AfroCelts stand out for me.
Who are you looking forward to seeing at HebCelt 2012?
Who am I most looking forward to seeing at HebCelt 2012 -my loyal band of merchandise volunteers of course!
