The Old Blind Dogs in Concert
One of Scotland's premier traditional bands with an edge, the Old Blind Dogs, will perform at a benefit concert for local community radio station KZYX on On Friday, September 29th at Eagles Hall in Fort Bragg, CA. Get ready to dance and sing with the dogs, as they support their new CD.
The doors will open at 6:30PM, and KZYX will get the party started with a bar featuring home-brewed beers, cider, and local wine. Music starts at 7:30.
Since forming in the early 1990's, Old Blind Dogs have stood on the cutting edge of Scotland's roots revival. The band has developed its own trademark style with an energetic mix of songs and tunes. Dynamic percussion, polished vocals, soaring fiddle and stirring pipes fuel the delicately-phrased melodies and traditional songs.
The Dogs have released twelve albums and have won numerous awards including the prestigious title of Folk Band of the Year at the 2004 and 2007 Scots Trad Music Awards. Their album 'Four On The Floor' picked up the IAP 'Best Celtic CD' Award and their last CD, 'Wherever Yet May Be' was nominated for the same award.
