German tour awaits for Cammy's band

A MUSICAL tour of Germany awaits an Annan musician and his band — after a warm-up gig in the town next weekend.

Cammy Black and 13 Crowes are set to perform a flurry of gigs in just ten days when they jet off to the continent in just over a week’s time.
Looking ahead, Cammy, 29, said: “We’re going to do ten gigs in ten days, going on November 23.
“A record company in Germany got in touch — one or two have been in touch — saying, ‘We’ll put an EP out for you, and put an album out for you, and fire you out on tour’.
“That was great. It’s what I’ve always wanted, just somebody to put a little of belief in me and say, ‘Here’s your CD and here’s your dates — get in the van and away you go’.”
Cammy played in Bad Fallingbostel, Germany, in December 2014, playing for the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards’ Christmas celebrations.
And last summer saw Cammy gigging in cities across America.
Looking ahead to playing in Frankfurt, Dortmund, Hamburg, Leipzig in Germany, and a one-off gig in Belgium, he said: “There’s been a bit of interest over there and a good few reviews done, and a wee bit of hype, so hopefully we can go over there and build something.”
On November 18, 13 Crowes will join Russell McKenzie from Gretna in the line-up for a gig in The Shed in Annan.
Explaining that 13 Crowes’ original drummer and bass player are unable to make the Germany trip, Cammy said: “I’ve got a couple of boys from The Sheepwagon in Annan are going to do those gigs.
“So we thought we’d get a wee warm-up gig in The Shed.”
13 Crowes brought out an EP in September and are currently preparing a full album due out at the start of next year.
Cammy says he is writing ‘all the time’, but looking forward to Germany and said: “It’s going to be good just to get in the band again and get playing every day for ten days. I can’t wait.”
