Ian Bruce
It is difficult to identify where, precisely, Ian Bruce assimilated his stylistic knowledge of the Scottish folk tradition. Whatever the source, it cannot be denied that Ian Bruce has emerged as one of the great singer/song-writers of the Scottish Folk Movement. He was the obvious choice, alongside Tony Cuffe, Rod Paterson and Billy Ross, to give new impetus to the 12 volume Linn Records series “The Complete Songs of Robert Burns” with his now classic renderings of Ye Jacobites By Name, The Soldier’s Return, Lassie Wi The Lintwhite Locks, etc. Linn Records recognised this outstanding achievement with two solo CDs of his own: “Alloway Tales” directly based upon his contributions to the project and “Jigs, Jives and Jacobites” featuring Ian’s own compositions.
