I posted a cut from this album in August and the info below is a repeat except for the song choice.
I saw Old Blind Dogs at an Irish Music Festival in the early 2000s and bought this CD at the festival. I’ve been fans of theirs ever since and own their other albums, Wherever Yet May Be (2010) and Room with a View (2017.) They are excellent musicians!
Old Blind Dogs is a Scottish musical group which plays traditional Scottish folk music and Celtic music, with influences from rock, reggae, jazz, blues, and Middle Eastern music rhythms. The three founding members of the band (Ian F. Benzie, Buzzby McMillan and Jonny Hardie) first met during a so-called “buskers’ holiday” in the Scottish Highlands in 1990,and after playing together for the summer decided to call themselves “Old Blind Dogs”. The band have toured extensively, performing in Britain, the USA, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Spain, Italy, and Russia.
At the time Old Blind Dogs: Play Live (2004), the band was made up of: Jim Malcolm, Jonny Hardie, Rory Campbell, Fraser Stone (drums, percussion,) and Aaron Jones (bouzouki, bass, backing vocals.)
My song choice today is A Wild Rumpus, an instrumental that is also the last song on the album.
