A veteran of the stage with some top stars

The wide open spaces of Levenmouth are being showcased alongside the talents of singer Janey Kirk in the local performer’s latest video.

‘Skeddley-de-di-day’ is the intriguingly-titled song which is a stand-alone taster for a new CD/DVD selection by Janey, from East Wemyss.

Lately, Janey has been recording in Ireland and writing with Marty Craggs, formerly of Lindisfarne.

“Lindisfarne have become my favourite band, although I don’t really have ‘favourite bands’,” she added – despite confessing to The Osmonds as an early well-liked combo.

The video was shot in a single day and features The Salon hairdresser in Leven’s Durie Street, Leven beach, a number of ‘country roads’, with Largo Law in the background, and sequences at the Balcurvie Riding School, owned by Alison and Paul Davidson.

Janey said she’d had a few horse riding lessons as well to add some authenticity to the video.

“I’ve always believed in using local businesses to try and promote them and other people I know who live in the area,” said Janey.

Janey has had a busy few months of recording and touring, including live shows with the legendary Phil Mack, and is about to join Irish singer-songwriter Derek Ryan for a few Scottish dates on his current tour, as well as stints of radio presenting and appearances on Irish cable channel 191.

Janey wrote most of the tracks on her recently-released studio album ‘Streets Of Loneliness’, while she is moving more into other styles of music besides country, for which she is best known.

She worked on the album with Jerry Donahue, ex-Fotheringay and Fairport Convention.

The record had a flavour of jazz and blues, as well as country, while Janey has also been perfecting songs from the likes of Tina Turner and Blondie.
