‘In early 2016 our show/band/showband, “Auld Hat – New Heids” was but a twinkle in its daddy’s eye. Many people were mourning the passing of the ‘fun’ days of the Scottish Folk Scene of the 1960’s/70’s, when practically every town of any size had a thriving folk club packed with people laughing, having fun and singing along to the chorus songs popular at the time.
Personally, I love nothing better than sitting in a crowd, singing their hearts out. As such, I thought it would be a good idea to try and recreate those days but in theatre/ festival venues and involving top quality musicians familiar and equal to the high standard of younger musicians currently on the ‘scene’.
Our show brings back many of the old favourites.
Songs, not forgotten but these days rarely aired are delivered with the cheeky but passionate ways of my little brother and me (Fraser & Ian Bruce).
Our virtuosos Pete Clark (fiddle) and Gregor Lowrey (accordion) are simply stunning instrumentalists……and singers!!!
And all this to a slideshow backdrop of some of the characters dead and alive who drove the Scottish Folk scene in the second half of the twentieth century’
