Band Bio & Reviews
One of the original cutting edge outfits in Scotland continuing new roots revival!”
“The skill, talent and verve with which they played, belied their laddishness and the crowd responded with thunderous applause. Folk is the new rock and roll.” Shoots and Roots Festival, April 1999 (Evening News).
Over the years Old Blind Dogs have evolved and grown into one of Scotland’s favourite folk bands. In the early days, the line-up consisted of: Jonny Hardie, Buzzby McMillan, and Ian Benzie, along with Dave Francis on percussion and Carmen Higgins on fiddle. In 1992 Dave and Carmen left, and Davy Cattanach joined the band (playing percussion), and they toured as a four piece for several years. During this time they recorded four great CDs with Scotland’s record label KRL - New Tricks, Close to the Bone, Tall Tails and Legacy.
