Other Info
After a long delay, Old Blind Dogs returns to Tucson to perform at the ASDB Berger PAC. We are pleased to welcome back Jonny Hardie on fiddle and vocals, Aaron Jones on bouzouki and vocals, Ali Hutton on bagpipes, and Donald Hay on percussion.

Since forming in Scotland in 1992, ‘The Dogs’ have stood on the cutting edge of the Scots 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.
"The Old Blind Dogs play with a compelling energy and intoxicating rhythm," says The Scotsman, “...as players and audience seem to share a wild ecstasy of emotion."

From French Canada, Le Vent du Nord (Wind of the North) is the most accomplished of the French Canadian bands and one of the few that feature hurdy-gurdy playing along with the full range of instruments, lots of foot percussion, and vocals in French. And, for this, their first performance in Tucson--we have them at the Temple of Music and Art downtown! Two notes: Le Vent's lead fiddler, Andre Brunet, switched over from playing with the band La Bottine Souriante (Smiling Boot) who are no longer touring. Note 2: The first of the two videos has 4 of the 5 members who will be here--without Andre Brunet, and the second of the videos is one of their signature songs, and does add a couple from Quebec on vocals only--it had the best sound quality.
