on stage: 07.30-08.20pm / 08.50-10.00pm

If you added up the amount of rambling these boys have done between them during
their careers, the resulting mileage would take you round the world several
times over. More than survivors of the great 1960s folk-song revival, coming
together from both sides of the Atlantic, all these artists have become
tradition-bearers and source singers in their turn. As eloquent interpreters of
both old ballads and contemporary material, as writers of enduring individual
compositions, as storytellers and, not least, as gifted and groundbreaking
instrumentalists, they have each left an indelible mark on the recent history of
Scottish and North American music.
