Songs from Scotland and Beyond
The Quiggs is a Scottish/Danish folk duo consisting of Stephen and Pernille Quigg. With The Quiggs you can hear folk song in its original form - simple, yet highly expressive, beautiful harmonies and songs that seek, even demand, the audience's participation. "The indicators of true quality extend to the individual and collective strengths of the Quiggs themselves, for both are fine singers with a nice line in harmony, and both are natural experts in the art of choosing excellent songs" (David Kidman, Living Tradition).

Ian Bruce
Just Like Riding A Bike
A live gig! Wow! I have great memories of audiences singing along. Enjoying heckles and reaction. Have you tried riding a bike after years of only driving a car? It's wobbly. I may wobble! You may wobble?! It's probably a while since you've been an audience member. Let's wobble together! Here I am again. Ian Bruce (me) singing old favourites and a few from albums released during lockdown. "Young Territorial" and "Children of Blue". As usual, one man, one voice, a few giggles and an acoustic guitar. Simple folk club-style entertainment. Come along my friends.
