Poor Dolly O’Rourke has been struck by the fluey bug and we will reschedule her and Mike for later in the year. Luckily, she was able to secure for us two first rate musicians and we will be delighted to welcome:

John started playing Folk Music in the sixties co-founding ‘The Clydesiders’ in 1968 with Sandy Kelso and remaining a member till they became inactive in 2000. They played on many TV and Radio shows as well as making 10 albums.
Jim’s introduction to Folk Music was in the Edinburgh Folk scene in the sixties and he went on to play with ‘Carterhall’ for a number of years , branching out in to Rock Bands in the 80’s and 90’s before returning to his Folk Music Roots
