Old Blind Dogs

the gab omey GLCD1223 (Green Linnet)

For over 10 years and numerous line-ups, this has been one of Scotland's favourite folk bands. The current 5 piece features Jim Malcolm (lead singer, guitar and harmonica). Jonny Hardie (fiddle, mandolin and backing vocals) and Rory Campbell (small pipes and whistles).
This is a collection of trad type tunes and songs with Jim's strong voice well to the fore and Rory and Jonny chipping in with some excellent instrumentals. Song wise there are interesting versions of 'Bogie's Bonny Belle' and the shanty 'Rolling Home'.
