Folk Singing.

The legendary, multi-award winning Old Blind Dogs bounded into their 25th anniversary year with a cracking new album ‘Room with a View' and full houses across Scotland, USA and Germany. The album was shortlisted for Scots Album of the Year 2017 at the Trad Awards. With a line-up from the world of Scottish folk music that is approaching superstar status, founder member Jonny Hardie (fiddle/vocals) is joined by Aaron Jones (guitar/bouzouki/vocals), Ali Hutton (pipes) and Donald Hay (percussion).

Together they create a sound that is uniquely Old Blind Dogs and which still stands at the forefront of the Scottish roots music revival. It's fair to say that their style, drawing as it does from the rhythms of Middle Eastern, rock, reggae, jazz and blues music went on to influence many bands but nobody does it like the Dogs! 25 years on, they show no signs of slowing down, indeed they are performing at their very peak.

‘There isn't a disappointing moment on Room with a View. In fact, it could well be a contender for Scottish album of the year.' - Folk World

‘They really understand musical storytelling, and know how to hold our attention, riveted, to each twist of the story.' - fROOTS

‘This is finely crafted, accomplished fun...’ - ★★★★ (Songlines)
