QUEENS HALL 12th August, Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
A different kind of Folk production. Forty singers revisit the halcyon days of the 60s and 70s singing sessions.......... from a bar on the Queens Hall stage.
This tops off an amazing journey for the production over the last few years. The extraordinary Scottish tour is over, finishing with a full house at the Usher Hall, standing for 6 minutes at the end of the concert. Thank you to all who participated.

Reviews of "Lost Tracks"
"A very welcome treat...everything the McCalmans did best.....Ian McCalman has done a great job in tracking down gems from all eras....undoubtedly welcomed by The McCalmans' very many fans."
LIVING TRADITION REVIEW:
"Nick Keir’s magical "Cold Night In This Old Town", which is a corker..... the hilarious "Bonnyrig Banker", "So The Years Roll On"...... the perfect way to bow out. This album is dedicated to the absent members who have passed – Derek Moffat and Nick Keir. They would have been bursting with pride." Grem Devlin

MINI BIOG of The McCalmans:
Scottish folk singers, song writers, talkers, travellers, friends. Formed 1964 whilst architecture students. Pubs/clubs. First album 1967. Multiple TV series. Concerts. Tours in UK, Denmark, rest of Europe, world. "Best live act" award, "Hall of Fame", 27 albums, recorded 400 songs, retired 2010. Only ever three in the Macs' line-up. Total of five musicians in 46 years.
"The McCalmans" retired in 2010 but the memory lingers on. Derek Moffat and Nick Keir, huge influences in the band, tragically passed away and are sorely missed. Stephen is still very successful with his concerts and tours, often singing with his wife Pernille. Ian writes songs and stage productions ("Ypres") and records/produces in his studio. Hamish makes concertinas in Orkney and still plays beautifully.
DVD for sale. Concert tour over.
See above re "McCalmans, LOST TRACKS". Exciting stuff.
Scripts of "Ypres" are now available via the "Far, Far From Ypres" link above.
**Pernille & Stephen Quigg "River of Time" 2015
This album by Stephen and Pernille is a real cracker. There's a lovely combination of old and new and the balance of the two voices is magic. I thoroughly recommend It." Ian McCalman
Nick's music was of great importance to him and us, so we'll keep up the news of his fine new album.
