Live demo EP (3 tracks) released Jan 2009



The band (aged between 23 and 30) have been playing together for a year, and have already made an impact with appearances at sporting functions such as the Great 100 Cycle Race, major charity fundraising events and as part of the National Museum of Scotland Homecoming programme. Jed Milroy’s banjo, Suzanne Adam on fiddle and guitar from Sandy Butler combine with sparkling close-harmony vocals from all three, in an energetic blend of traditional and modern songs and tunes. The trio are often joined by bass and drums for extra depth and drive.
A troubadour at heart, Jed is happiest plucking the banjo and singing to a drunken mob. He has played in a variety of projects, from major label rock group ‘The Aliens’ to busking on the streets of Edinburgh. Sandy was raised in a recording studio, surrounded by great musicians and songwriters, so it is not surprising that he is happiest when twanging strings in a revoltingly precocious manner, given his tender age (born July 1986, should you wish to send him a birthday card).
Suzanne has been playing professionally since age 14, cutting her teeth on traditional ceilidhs in Scotland's capital city. Her fantastically versatile voice and sensitive fiddle style is much in demand for session and gig work but she loves the Homecoming boys the best!
