Did you know that we share 96.4% of our DNA with Orangutans? Sumatran Orangutans are one of our closest relatives in the animal kingdom, but they are in big trouble due to the massive rate of deforestation - there are just 6,600 left in the wild. Aaron wanted to do something to help, so he signed up to grow a beard for Ape-ril, in solidarity with our red-haired relatives! Growing a beard is something that all apes can do, and what’s a bit of an itchy chin between cousins?
It would be great if you would consider sponsoring Aaron AND sharing his page on Facebook and Twitter.

It's been a fantastic year for Litha which saw us launch our second album in Glasgow at the city's prestigious Celtic Connections festival. The album, titled 'Dancing of the Light' has been praised by critics and fans and has added fourteen great new pieces to our colourful live set, which we enjoy playing a lot!
As winter fast approaches, we're all looking eagerly forward in anticipation of our forthcoming German tour in November. The trip will see us perform in Ravensburg, Irsee, Pforzheim, Gütersloh, Bad Oeynhausen, Drensteinfurt, Günthersleben-Wechmar, Weisbaden, Minden, Salzgitter, Haßbergen and Zürich in Switzerland. It seems a long time ago that we launched our CD in Glasgow in January but it's been a busy and productive year with our new album receiving great critical acclaim all over the world. If you have the chance, we'd love to see you at one of our concerts. To find out more details about our concerts visit our Tour Dates section by clicking here.

Einige wenige Plätze sind noch frei und anmelden kann man sich hier.
Getting ready for a wee tour in the north of Germany. Hope to see you there :-)
