Since forming in the early 1990's, Old Blind Dogs have stood on the cutting edge of Scotland's roots revival. The Montreal Gazette calls the band “a Scots neo-traditional super group, with a bracingly modern musical attack." Indeed, the four musicians have developed their own trademark style, featuring an energetic mix of songs and tunes. Dynamic percussion, polished vocals, soaring fiddle and stirring pipes fuel the delicately-phrased melodies and traditional songs. The band has released eleven albums and won numerous awards including the prestigious Folk Band of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards. Their album Four On The Floor was named Best Celtic CD by the IAP and their latest release, Wherever Yet May Be, was nominated for the same award. Proclaims the Los Angeles Times, "Old Blind Dogs bring freshness and colour to an acoustic music steeped in centuries of Scottish folklore and history." In the words of Acoustic Guitar, “Old Blind Dogs have mastered the tricky art of innovating within a musical tradition while faithfully revealing its essence."
