Two Ruther­glen broth­ers a re cont i n u i n g to per­form at the Ed­in­burgh Fes­ti­val.

Fraser Bruce and his younger brother Ian wil per­form to­day and again on Mon­day at The Acous­tic Mu­sic Cen­tre at St Brides.

The broth­ers are be­ing joined for the shows by Ian Walker and his wife Moe.

The four will sing as a group at the fes­ti­val us­ing ma­te­rial from re­cent al­bum re­leases, and be­tween them they have re­leased over 30 al­bums.

The two Ians of­ten per­form as Bruce and Walker – and per­formed at Ruther­glen Town Hall last year, with a re­turn date pen­cilled in for this Novem­ber.

And Ian and Fraser Bruce per­formed to­gether for six years, ap­pear­ing all over the world at clubs, con­certs and fes­ti­vals. They re­leased three al­bums un­der the ti­tle of ‘Mrs Bruce’s Boys Vol 1’, etc.

A fur­ther CD ti­tled ‘The Best of Mrs Bruce’s Boys’ was re­leased on Greentrax records.

The new al­bum is a se­lec­tion of tracks from the three orig­i­nals, but remixed, and at a con­cert in Ed­in­burgh they re-recorded five tracks live.

Fraser said: “The Mrs Bruce’s Boys ti­tle sort of stuck with us, so now we just use it if do­ing gigs.”

Ian Bruce is con­sid­ered one of Scot­land’s best voices and singers of Robert Burns songs.

His al­bum ‘Al­loway Tales’ was voted as one of the best two al­bums of Robert Burns songs ever re­leased, by a Scots­man poll.

Later this year will see the Bruce & Walker road­show at the Town Hall on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 18, with tick­ets priced at £12 or £10.

They’ll be joined on the night by the Mairs Fam­ily Band.
