Colin MacIntyre – aka Mull Historical Society – has been rather busy these last few years. Most notably, the man responsible for 2001’s gold-selling debut album Loss wrote his debut novel in 2015 and The Letters of Ivor Punch went on to win the Edinburgh International Book Festival First Book Award. More recently, Colin has released two new stories; The Boy In The Bubble is a memoir about growing up on the Isle of Mull, while The Humdrum Drum is his first children’s picture book and comes complete with accompanying CD of original related songs and an audiobook.

Thankfully, for those of us who enjoy the Mull Historical Society side of his persona, he’s now about to release his first music in over two years. September sees Colin touring the UK to promote new LP Wakelines, produced by Bernard Butler and featuring songs about family, home, islands, dreams and travel. This is Colin’s eighth album and, judging by the title track it will be another collection of the instantly listenable, slightly skewed melodic pop songs we’ve come to expect from him. As such, Colin’s September shows will comprise both music and readings from his memoir, and he visits Newcastle’s Cluny on Sunday 30th September.
