The Douglas Firs, whose beautiful album Happy As A Windless Flag came out a few weeks ago and is still rebounding around my head (it’s great!), answered some questions for us.
1. How did the act form & how long have you been playing on the Edinburgh scene?
A bedroom project formed in 2003, in Aberdeen, that finally became a live venture just over a year ago.
2. What’s your favourite venue for playing in, and what’s your favourite venue for watching a gig in?
The best venues for me at the churches: Old St Paul’s, Pilrig St Paul’s. They have a great village hall feel to them.
3. Where/when (and why) was the best gig you’ve played in Edinburgh?
Our album launch at Old St Paul’s church was my favourite show, the atmosphere was warm and relaxed.
4. If your act was an animal, Pokemon, mythical creature or superhero – which one would it be?
