Other Roads at EFC / Edinburgh Folk Club
One of the finest of the UK's contemporary folk bands, the trio Other Roads make a welcome return to EFC. Regular, continuous touring across Europe and 'down under' in New Zealand has given the band an ever-tighter sound and stage presence.

PETE ABBOTT is a highly regarded and respected singer/songwriter & guitarist. Pete is the driving force behind the band and leads from the front, bringing to the performances his own relaxed and confident style. Whilst being a seasoned solo artiste, his sheer enjoyment of sharing the stage with two great musicians and friends is there for all to see, and that enjoyment is transmitted to the audience in abundance. The emphasis of Petes performances is always on entertainment, ensuring that the band not only deliver high class musicianship but also a good time for their audience.

GREGOR BORLAND'S fiddling heritage is definitely impressive  a student of two legends of the Scottish fiddle, Donald Riddell and Hector MacAndrew and eight times Scottish Fiddle Champion, Gregor now teaches the same style of fiddle to students all over the world and passes on the legacy to many who seek it. His pedigree as a professional fiddle player is undeniable, having toured all over the world with various high profile musicians and bands from a young age. Hes equally at home on bass guitar or mandolin. The vast experience Greg has gained in music has given him a greater understanding of musical production and arrangements and he consequently takes on the role of producer and arranger for Other Roads.

DAVE WALMISLEY was born on a tobacco farm in Zimbabwe, moving to the UK at the age of 17, but still holds dear his roots in Africa. He was delighted to be asked to join Other Roads and continue his real love of getting out there and playing music! A talented multi instrumentalist, singer and songwriter, he adds his own touch of class to the bands arrangements bringing a great ear for harmonies as well as taking the occasional lead vocal.  Daves wonderful on-stage humour has made him a very popular member of the band.
