The Old Blind Dogs, touted as one of Scotland's finest traditional folk bands, will be in concert Saturday in Prescott.
"Celebrating their 18th year as a band, Old Blind Dogs continue to distinguish themselves as vital, innovative ambassadors of traditional music," said David McNabb, director of the Prescott Celtic Concert Series, sponsors of the band's appearance. "They have won both Best Band and Best Album awards from the Scot's Traditional Music Awards and are one of the top three touring bands from Scotland."
The concert, which takes place at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 630 Park Ave., opens with the band Iona at 6:30 p.m. The Dogs take the stage at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance, $23 at the door, $5 for students and free for ages under 14. Advance tickets are available at Celtic Crossings Pub at the Prescott Gateway Mall or by calling McNabb at 771-1218.
Old Blind Dogs started up in 1990, and has gone through personnel changes over the years. But founder Jonny Hardie has kept on plucking his fiddle and has added singer Aaron Jones, percussionist Fraser Stone and Ali Hutton on pipes and whistles to the mix.
