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. After their first album They Smiled as We Cam In was issued in 2005 they were nominated in the Scots Trad Music Awards as Scottish Folk Band of the Year for 2006.

Quite simply, if you want to hear some of the cream of Scots song, look no further than here.
Living Tradition (Issue 92: Summer 2012)

Potent examples of their informal art.
