The Hobbledehoy needs your help today

On the day England leaves the European Union and The Trump Crime Family pisses all over the U.S. Constitution – The Hobbledehoy needs to do something – anything – to help somebody out.

We heard Scottish musician Kris Drever had his equipment stolen the other night at Celtic Connections in Glasgow. The Hobbledehoy loves folk music from Britain, and Kris’ music brings people much happiness.

There’s a GOFUNDME page set-up to help Kris purchase new equipment. Let’s help him out, please. Music and the arts will help us all find a way out of these dark times.

And fuck Donald Trump.

Walking with Storm in Glasgow

Who knew that finding and walking with a Storm was so much fun. She stands at 10 meters tall and weighs around 1 tonne, this fine girl was the kick off entertainment to the music festival – Celtic Connections. For Scotland this is the year of Coasts and Water and this old girl was made from items recycled from the beaches and Scotland’s coastline. The team involved took 2 years to make her I couldn’t wait to go and see her on my doorstep. I wasn’t disappointed at all in fact I thinking about our environment and the beauty Scotland has in its coastlines and water it really is so important that we all do our bit for climate change and protect these wonderful place. At ten metres tall, her eyes are the colour of oyster shells, her hair thick strands of kelp, her voice the chorus of the waves. Aided by eight puppeteers, Storm will visit the heart of towns and villages across the country, gazing down at the beauty of our coastlines, urging care for the environment every step of the way. – Scotts Land
