Old Blind Dogs have stood on the cutting edge of Scotland’s roots revival since the early 1990s. The band has developed its own trademark style with an energetic mix of songs and tunes fueled by dynamic percussion, polished vocals, soaring fiddle and stir¬ring pipes.

Standing on the cutting edge of Scotland’s roots revival since the early 1990s, the band’s delicately phrased melodies and traditional songs are fueled by polished vocals, dynamic percussion, soaring fiddle and stirring pipes. 

The Dogs have released 11 albums and won numerous awards including the prestigious title of Folk Band of the Year at the 2004 and 2007 Scots Trad Music Awards. Their latest album, Wherever Yet May Be, reflects the heritage of their forefathers but also comes across as resoundingly fresh and immediate.

Called, “A Scots neo-traditional super group, with a bracingly modern musical attack” by the Montreal Gazette, each of the members is involved in a number of other musical projects and has performed with a virtual who’s who of traditional musicians. 

Vocalist, guitarist and “mighty” bouzouki player Aaron Jones was the featured guest at the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center’s Irish Christmas in America performance in 2012. Fiddle/guitar player and vocalist Jonny Hardie is a founding member of the band and has been a regular guest of the Chieftains. Calling the band’s playing “jaw-dropping,” ThreeWeeks Festival described multi-instrumentalist Ali Hutton as “an athlete on the pipes.” A top rated percussionist who has recently played with Ali Bain and Jerry Douglas, Donald Hay is known for an exceptional ability to play with power, empathy, delicacy and drama. 
  

“What makes Old Blind Dogs special, however, is their power to evoke the wild, historic Scottish landscape and bring it to life in the contemporary world, even when they cover AC/DC. “ – Three-Weeks Festival
