Shepheard, Spiers & Watson: They Smiled as we Cam In
Recognised as three individuals with a long experience of traditional song, Pete, Tom and Arthur bring together a wealth of repertoire accompanied on melodeon, fiddle and whistle and gleaned directly from the many traditional singers they have known. They were nominated in the Scots Trad Music Awards as Scottish Folk Band of the Year for 2006.
|Sprangeen - Sprangeen
The band (of seven women) derived their style and repertoire from a wide range of traditional roots. All have gone on to contribute to the richness of the current Scottish music revival, Patsy Seddon and Mary MacMaster play together as a duet in Sileas and were both founder members of The Poozies.
|John Watt & Davey Stewart: Shores of the Forth
Fife’s Got Everything according to the song by John and Davey. A slightly exaggerated claim perhaps, but the two Fifers from Dunfermline and St Andrews respectively go a long way to prove it. Comedy songs, serious songs and recitations paint both a contemporary and past picture of this beautiful part of Scotland from two of the finest entertainers to come out of the ancient ‘Kingdom of Fife’.
|Iain McLachlan: An Island Heritage
Iain McLachlan's music comes as fresh as the sea breezes wafting over the Uist machair - Highland and Gaelic as his island heritage. Includes his famous composition The Dark Island and many traditional tunes played with other island musicians on fiddle, button accordion, melodeon and goose. A highly praised gem.

Bothy songs and Scottish country music jas long been a part of life at the Foundry Bar in Arbroath.

This, their first album, was issued in 1981 and it has been a top selling album ever since - first as an LP, then on cassette and now remastered in CD format.
|OSSIAN - OSSIAN

|Jim Reid & John Huband: Freewheeling Now
Jim Reid had been leader of Arbroath’s legendary Foundry Bar Band for more than ten years when he recorded this album in 1990 and, with the band, he had already recorded three highly successful albums. The title track Freewheeling Now is one of Jim’s own compositions. Other songs include the Dundee whaling song The Balaena and Mary Brooksbank’s famous Jute Mill Song.

The CD includes a Bonus track - Savourna and Aly's new, extended, 6 minute version of The Trip We Took Over the Mountains.
