So you are Scottish, aren't you?
The question people ask me most of the time…
But I'm not : I'm French from East-France exactly.
The history of my family has driven me to the western shores of Europe. I learned then to love Scotland and Brittany, in all their beauties. All the Celtic cultures appeared to me as paths I had to take.
I put on - with a great pleasure and the permanent concern for authenticity - these Celtic musician clothes with McLewis for artist name (according to my mother's name) : they all became like an authentic second skin.
And my biggest pleasure is in your own pleasure when I share with you the originality of the culture I've received myself.
This is part of my path and why I hesitate a bit when you want to know if I'm Scottish or even Breton.
Well, in a way, I became each one. In which proportion, who cares?
Music belongs to who wants to discover it instead of ignore it.
