The Foundry Bar Band – Rolling Home
The unique and unmistakable sound of the Foundry Bar Band has been an important part of the Scottish music scene for more than a decade - Rolling Home is their third album.
The Foundry Bar in the old fishing town of Arbroath had long been a home to local fiddlers and accordionists when, in 1976, Jim Reid gathered together a few of the regular musicians and headed for the Kinross Festival where they entered and won the Ceilidh Band competition. So was born the Foundry Bar Band.
Since then the band has played at concerts and ceilidhs, clubs and festivals, village hall dances and weddings throughout the country, and of course they never miss their favourite traditional music festivals at Keith and Auchtermuchty. Here the band come rolling home – home to a quiet ceilidh in one of their regular haunts in the Angus countryside.
