"The McCalmans" retired in 2010 but the memory lingers on. Stephen is very successful with his concerts and tours, often singing with his wife Pernille. Ian writes songs and stage productions ("Ypres") and spends time recording others in his studio. Hamish makes concertinas in Orkney and is still a wonderful player of the instrument.
"Far, Far From Ypres"
Greenock's Beacon Theatre, on October 5th, turned out to be the surprise package of the year. Yet again we had a wonderful audience and the reaction to the performance was extremely moving. On a personal note, it was great seeing an old friend, Jimmy Macgregor, after the show, looking as fit and healthy as ever.
The show now moves to Bordeaux, 17th Oct, where we will take part in Remembrance services there, as well as a performance of "Ypres".
Scripts of "Ypres" are free and will be sent to those requesting them via email. Contact this site if you would like a script.

The McCalmans' compilation double album "The Greentrax Years" was released on January 6th 2010. The price is the same as a single album but for that price, you get 47 tracks of McCalmans' magic from Ian, Nick, Stephen, Hamish and Derek.
