Uptown Mugs #38 Gregory Pringle


You may know him as the oatcake man, charmingly kilted at the local markets selling his delicious home-made oatcakes. Or, perhaps you’ve seen him setting up and working as sound technician during the uptown “Summer in the Square” music series, helping the bands lend their best melodies to our uptown. No doubt, you have noticed him out and about during his various involvements in uptown activity. Greg is a man of many talents, and uptown is thankful for his efforts in all that he does.
