    The career of Fraser Bruce has not been dedicated to folk song, although it has taken up a large part of his life. As a young boy he was a beneficiary of the Norman Buchan Ballads Club at Rutherglen Academy on the South Side of Glasgow. There were many young people from this club who went on to retain an interest in folk song for the rest of their lives, a few made it their career. Fraser has been described as a ‘man of many parts’ because of the diversity of his interests. He is joined by Gavin Paterson
