    A chance encounter with an accordion in his early teens gave lan Holmes his entry into the world of Scottish Country Dance Music; his interest and innate skills soon developed, and led him to the forefront of the dance music scene with his own band.

    Ricky Franci joined the band at its formation in 1962, and the two founder members are here joined by Jim Clark, Willie Lowe and Drew Dalgleish.

    Guest musician on this C.D. is lan Powrie, who led his own band for many years, but since his return from Australia plays mainly as a soloist. The innovative techniques of these superb musicians have contributed much to the flourishing traditions of Scottish Country Dance music.
