The Spanish Peaks International Celtic Music Festival is thrilled to announce that Scotland’s Old Blind Dogs are returning after a one-year absence.  On a Friday night two Septembers ago they captured the audience from the first tune and didn’t let go until over two hours later.  Their music is tight, at once traditional and fresh, and charged with expression and energy.

Since forming in the early 1990s, 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.

We hope that this announcement whets your appetite for who else will be joining the Dogs in ’19!  Look for numerous announcements in the coming days.  Listen to their latest album, “Room With A View.”
