Capital gains for Bruce bros
Fraser and Ian’s Edinburgh gig
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.
