Since forming in the early 1990’s, Old Blind Dogs have stood on the cutting edge of Scotland’s roots revival. From Aberdeenshire, on Scotland’s northeast coast, the band has developed its own trademark style with an energetic sound. Dynamic percussion, polished vocals, soaring fiddle, and stirring pipes fuel the delicately-phrased melodies and traditional songs. The Scotsman notes, “The Old Blind Dogs play with a compelling energy and intoxicating rhythm as players and audience both seem to share a wild ecstasy of emotions.” The Dogs have released eleven albums and have won numerous awards including the prestigious title of Folk Band of the Year at the Scotland Traditional Music Awards (twice). Their album |“Four On The Floor” picked up the IAP “Best Celtic CD” Award and their most recent CD “Wherever Yet May Be” was nominated for the same award. “Old Blind Dogs bring freshness and color to acoustic music steeped in centuries of Scottish folklore and history.” (Los Angeles Times)
