Sleeve Notes

For 16 years, The McCalmans, the Scottish folk trio, have served a growing audience, in an impressive number of countries, including places not traditionally visited by folk groups. In recent years, in addition to the "natural" tours of Europe and the United States, the McCalmans have appeared in such strange places as Cyprus, Malta, Saudi Arabia, Gibaltar, Bermuda, Central America and the Faroe Islands.

Ian McCalman, Derek Moffat and Hamish Bayne know the hard art of blending traditional folk and humor to perfection and as a group, The McCalmans stands for the most welded folk can present today. Their performance is a sliding show where the introductions to the individual songs and the interplay on stage merge into an ever-varied and rarely professional party fireworks of gags and folk.
