Through Jo’s contact with the Whisky Experience, with whom she is working, we arranged a photoshoot for Scottish folk music band Càirdeas this weekend at the Hotel Schweizerhof in Lucerne. The guys come over from Scotland on a regular basis to play gigs at places like the Pickwick chain of British pubs and at whisky tasting events. The staff of the grand hotel on the shores of Lake Lucerne were happy for us to shoot in their main banqueting hall.
