Old Blind Dogs
The Celtic Society has been privileged to promote concerts by many of the finest performers of Scottish and Irish music over the years and perhaps none better than Old Blind Dogs.
One of the most highly touted Celtic groups of our time, Old Blind Dogs is the only multiple winner of the prestigious Scots Trad Music Award as ‘Folk Band of the Year’. With numerous CDs already in the bag, you’ll have a chance to collar their brand new offering titled Knucklehead Circus.
Old Blind Dogs continue to distinguish themselves as vital, innovative ambassadors of Scots music by subtly and ingeniously expanding upon the very tradition they celebrate in harnessing the rich resonance and timeless themes of the songs and tunes of their homeland and weld them to new rhythmic frameworks, dynamic arcs and textural expanses. This produces a uniquely identifiable sound that reflects the rich heritage of their forefathers, yet comes across as resoundingly fresh and immediate.
OBD’s incandescent instrumental arsenal of pipes, fiddle, whistles, bouzouki, guitar and percussion and their vibrant, virile vocals have left concertgoers raving for more and led to rave reviews, such as from The Scotsman, “Old Blind Dogs play with a compelling energy and intoxicating rhythm as players and audience seem to share a wild ecstasy of emotion.”
