Rob will tour many of The Medicine Show favourites around Europe through "The Medicine Show Radio Revue". The Highland tour has become a pilgrimage with American Musicians in particular, wishing to trace the roots of the music back to The Highlands. Rob says, "I am fascinated by the song lines and tracing the roots of music, but equally fascinated with the contemporary shoots that keep it all alive and well".
