For the past 30 years and more, Jim Malcolm has been a Scots troubadour, taking the traditional songs of Scotland and his own prizewinning compositions to all corners of the UK, and around almost every state in the USA. His voice is one of the finest in Scotland, accompanied by meticulous guitar playing and mouth organ.
This year he has another trick up his sleeve! With their children off to pastures new, wife Susie, an award-winning traditional singer herself, has broken out of the Malcolm office. She sings songs from the North East and has a penchant for ballads.
Together they offer harmonies and humour, tales from the road, the riverside and from the home front, and are not to be missed.
