"A Scots neo-traditional super group, with a bracingly modern musical attack." (Montreal Gazette)

Since forming in Scotland in 1992, The Old Blind Dogs have stood on the cutting edge of the Scots roots revival. Dynamic percussion, polished vocals, soaring fiddle and stirring pipes fuel the delicately-phrased melodies and traditional songs.

The Old Blind Dogs play with a compelling energy and intoxicating rhythm," says The Scotsman, “...as players and audience seem to share a wild ecstasy of emotion."

A strong, shared musical vision has allowed the group to ride out inevitable line-up changes to the extent that the only original member still with the band is Jonny Hardie (fiddle, guitar and vocals). The Dogs' popularity has never dimmed, though, and the current foursome of Hardie, Aaron Jones (bouzouki, guitar, vocals), Ali Hutton (pipes, whistles, vocals) and Donald Hay (drums, percussion) have proven more than capable of carrying on the tradition.

The Dogs have released thirteen studio albums and have won numerous awards including the prestigious title of Folk Band of the Year at the 2004 and 2007 MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards. Their latest CD, Room With A View, was shortlisted for Album of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards in 2017.
