Welcoming Ian Bruce and Ian Walker

Ian Bruce Ian WalkerIan Bruce is probably one of the finest and most capable male singers in Scotland.  His album Alloway Tales on the Linn record label was voted by The Scotsman as one of the best two albums of Robert Burns songs ever. He is also an excellent song writer.

Bruce has appeared all over the world and extensively in the UK. However, his diary has been somewhat random over the years with gigs scattered far and wide. In the 1980s he sang with his brother Fraser Bruce and the duo became extremely successful until Fraser decided to go back into Civil Engineering. Ian continued as a solo artist and has around 20 albums solo albums to his credit as well as appearing on many other releases.

He has now teamed up with Ian Walker, another singer well established on the Scottish folk scene. Their album Born To Rottenrow released last February met with acclaim and was 'album of the week' on several radio stations.

The pair are now looking to put together a tour including gigs in the North West area and would welcome interest either from venues or a tour organiser. Contact Fraser Bruce in the first instance by e-mail or call  01786 448822.
