This is my fan page for Old Blind Dogs, a four-man group from Scotland. They play traditional Scots music with a contemporary edge, and have been around since the early 1990's. See Tour Dates.
The members of the group have changed over the years, as has the band's sound, but the music is always great! They have a powerful, unique sound, with djembe and conga drums and Scottish border pipes.
Check them out! www.oldblinddogs.demon.co.uk

In 2007 they had a reunion of current and former members, playing two concerts in Scotland. They say they will release a DVD of these performances. I can't wait!

CD Review
The lyrics to the auld songs are amazing - also the vocals, melodies, and instrumentation. Tender ballads and great pumping dance music - full of passion.

The current lineup is (top photo) Aaron Jones (guitar, bouzouki and lead vocals), and Ali Hutton (pipes and whistle and backup vocals); (photo right), drummer and percussionist Fraser Stone, and (photo below right) original member Jonny Hardie (fiddle, mandolin, guitar and backup vocals). These photos were taken at a May 2011 concert in Delaware (sponsored by the Green Willow Folk Club). Jonny Hardie did not play this night, due to an immigration red tape issue, but I've included a photo of him from a past Dogs' concert.
I took this photo of a drum in Fraser's setup - I don't know what kind of drum this is, but it was beautifully inlaid with what looked like shell or enamel in beautiful rose and pale blue.
