The musical evolution of Old Blind Dogs began in Aberdeen in 1992 with roots that grew from the eclectic music scene that flourished in the Granite City during the early 90s. Four musicians from very different musical backgrounds came together to create a full-time professional touring band with the aim of showcasing the rich tradition of songs and tunes of the North-East of Scotland.

After nearly a dozen albums, the latest project, Knucklehead Circus, is the group’s answer to the pandemic – looking to get people up and dancing again after the long-enforced absence of live music. The players engage in a cinematic and alluring seductive trance-like opening at the start of the title track, which then turns into what seems a full blown courtship, lilting with lofty musical adventure.

The current line up of the Dugs consists of four of Scotland’s finest traditional musicians at the top of their game. Original member Jonny Hardie (fiddle/vocals), Aaron Jones (cittern/guitar/vocals), Mike Katz (pipes) and Donald Hay (percussion/vocals). Collectively they comprise one of the most highly touted traditional folk bands on the Scottish music scene today. The Old Blind Dogs play with a compelling energy and intoxicating rhythm, as players and audience share a wild ecstasy of emotion.
