    Hi!
    I've been spending a lot of time seeing mind-blowingly brilliant shows at the Edinburgh Festivals and am now on the West Coast attempting to edit and mix my new EP Imprint:Abandon.

    This was written and recorded in Huntly as part of a residency with Deveron Arts. I was lucky to have the fantastic musical company of Anna Meredith, John Blease and Tom Rogerson on this recording. The EP will be released in December.

    I've been playing a lot recently with the brilliant guitarist Greame Stephen and also drummer John Blease. We had a great gig in the Spiegeltent in Edinburgh recently. Here's a review. Looking forward to playing more with these guys as the Aidan O'Rourke Trio.

    I have a gig coming up as part of the Tae Sup Wi' A Fifer series which James Yorkston is putting together. I'll play this as a duo with Graeme. Also on the bill is Aidan Moffat and Bill Wells and Sheena Wellington.

    Looking forward to it very much.

    Check out more gigs in the brilliant series here.

    Hope you've been having a great summer.

    Just back from a full-on trip to Bangladesh. We made a couple of interesting tracks which will be mixed over the next couple of weeks sand hopefully I can let you hear them here.

    Next week Lau head over to the USA. We start at Savannah Music Festival and then take in New York and San Francisco finishing off with our own headline show at The Mercury Lounge in New York on 11th April.

    That should be fun!

    Full gig details are here.

    Tomorrow I fly to Dhaka for an exciting British Council supported collaboration with two legendary Bangladeshi musicians. Joining me from this side is producer/drummer, pal and my occasional stunt double Mattie Foulds. The main collaborators in Dhaka will be Momtaz Begum and Labik Kamal. Momtaz is known as the Music Queen and had recorded 700 records. 700! She is also an MP.
    We'll be in a studio together for 6 days. I'll try and keep you posted here and on Twitter.
    Exciting days ahead.
