Old Blind Dogs
Play Live!


New Release On Green Linnet:

Old Blind Dogs have been at the cutting edge of the Scottish roots revival for over 15 years, since forming in fiddler Jonny Hardie's native Aberdeenshire. Dynamic percussion, bluesy harmonica and smoking small pipes blend with fiddle, whistle, cittern and Jim Malcolm's rich vocals. Wonderfully polished, the arrangements are, as always, both tight and constantly surprising as the band fuses originals with the traditional. The Scotsman has dubbed the band's mixing of the traditional with world rhythms 'Caledonian groovery'. The Dogs were recently named Folk Band of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards, while lead vocalist Jim Malcolm picked up the coveted Songwriter of the Year award.

Old Blind Dog's Play Live was recorded during their Spring tour of the U.S. and Canada in 2004. Live tracks from Chicago's renowned Old Town School of Folk Music (where they performed two shows with John Renbourn) and The Tulsa Theatre for the Performing Arts are featured on this CD. All of the energy and excitement of their live shows included here!

The thirteen tracks include the funky traditional Kincardine Lads, an achingly beautiful Breton & Galician set, two of Jim's powerful self-penned ballads, and a couple of piper Rory Campbell's psychedelic originals, A Wild Rumpus and Soup of the Day. A Robert Burns' song rounds out the set. On Play Live the Dogs are at their peak, Malcolm's rich vocals are wonderfully polished, and the arrangements are, as always, both tight and constantly surprising.

Many musical artists and groups are active in their communities. Some perform before faithful fans on a regular schedule each week or weekend. They are independent musicians as compared to those music industry big names. We often think of the big name groups because we are exposed to the marketing blitz. I have had the opportunity to hear a number of independent performers with Capital Celtic. Some are just starting out and are perhaps a little rough around the edges and some are so outstanding I wonder why they have not entered into the "Big Time" music industry. Perhaps you have experienced the same? Perhaps you know of a new artist or group that you believe has talent that would be enjoyed by others? If so send me a CD and Bio and we will feature them on The Capital Celtic Network. - EEHealy
