Ian McCalman

Ian McCalman The guy that "retired". Born Edinburgh and lives just south, in Lasswade. Attended Edinburgh School of Art, studying Architecture then The Napier College studying photography. Founded the Macs with Hamish Bayne and Derek Moffat on the first day at Art School and has written around 45 of the Macs' songs. Ian also runs 'Kevock Digital', a highly-regarded recording studio which specialises in acoustic music. He plays a Martin D35 guitar and for 30 years, took 70% of the lead singing, alas no more. If anyone worries about his reirement.... don't. He's highly motivated and is still doing everything, but more!

the late Nick Keir

Nick Keir Born Edinburgh, Attended Edinburgh Academy and Stirling University. Formerly with Finn mac Cuill and 7:84 (Scotland). The Group’s multi-instumentalist, Nick wrote a good number of songs for the band, and also performed solo and in The Tolkien Ensemble. He passed away on June 2nd 2013 and is sadly missed by every person, fortunate enough to meet him.

Stephen Quigg

Stephen Quigg Born Ardrossan, Ayrshire, lives in Saltcoats. Stephen has produced 5 solo CDs and is one of the most in-demand musicians in Scotland. Stephen's fine singing and unaffected enthusiasm for the music has made him extremely popular wherever he has performed. Stephen plays - Guild guitar, mouth organs (mostly borrowed from Nick), bodhran and banjo. He occasioanally sings with his wife Pernille and this musical partnership is well worth watching (top tip from Ian). "Sensitive and unique singing voice plus an extremely entertaining presentation".
