MINI BIOG of The McCalmans:
Scottish folk singers, song writers, talkers, travellers, friends. Formed 1964 whilst architecture students. First gig in The Waverley Bar, Edinburgh. Pubs/clubs. Concerts. First album 1967. Multiple TV series. Tours in UK, Denmark, rest of Europe, world. "Best live act" award, "Hall of Fame", 27 albums, recorded 400 songs, retired 2010. Only ever three in the Macs' line-up. Total of five musicians in 46 years."The McCalmans" retired in 2010 but the memory lingers on. Derek Moffat and Nick Keir, huge influences in the band, tragically passed away and are sorely missed. Stephen is still very successful with his concerts and tours, often singing with his wife Pernille (The Quiggs). Ian writes songs and stage productions ("Far Far From Ypres", "No Pasaran", "Singing Sixties" ) and records/produces in his studio. Hamish makes concertinas in Orkney and still plays beautifully.
P.S. In the 2020/21 "Lockdown": Ian has taught himself how to play the keyboard badly, Stephen and Pernille have a new album and are gaining a good reputation for their web shows. Hamish is building a boat. What did you do?

Reviews of "Lost Tracks"
"A very welcome treat...everything the McCalmans did best.....Ian McCalman has done a great job in tracking down gems from all eras....undoubtedly welcomed by The McCalmans' very many fans."
LIVING TRADITION REVIEW:
"Nick Keir’s magical "Cold Night In This Old Town", which is a corker..... the hilarious "Bonnyrig Banker", "So The Years Roll On"...... the perfect way to bow out. This album is dedicated to the absent members who have passed – Derek Moffat and Nick Keir. They would have been bursting with pride." Grem Devlin

Pernille & Stephen "The Quiggs" (News: new album out soon)
This album by Stephen and Pernille is a real cracker. There's a lovely combination of old and new and the balance of the two voices is magic. I thoroughly recommend It." Ian McCalman
