DORIC TikTok sensation Aye Tunes is set to tour their production of My Doric Diary across Scotland.

Fraserburgh-born actor and singer Katie Barnett and her actor-musician husband James Siggens first performed as Aye Tunes during lockdown.

They recorded Doric covers of pop songs such as Little Mix’s Shout Out To My Ex which racked up around 80,000 views overnight.

My Doric Diary follows the story of Daisy – a teenager from Fraserburgh – who is finding her voice amid the grief of her mother’s death and finds herself transported back in time.

Reflecting on touring the work, Barnett said: “We are so excited to be bringing My Doric Diary out on tour next year.

“Taking it up to the north east will be such a wonderful opportunity to celebrate Scots language with those who speak it and performing it elsewhere in Scotland will hopefully be a fun and original way for folk to hear our amazing dialect.

“A Doric musical is something I’m so proud to have created.”

The production is among five new and five revived productions receiving £1 million from the Touring Fund for Theatre and Dance to tour venues across Scotland’s villages from autumn 2023 to spring 2024.

The musical was a hit on stage during its run at A Play, A Pie and A Pint in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen in April of this year.

Following the run, Barnett was nominated for Scots Performer of the Year at the Scots Language Awards for her performance.
