extensive tour of Europe and Norh America with plans for a new LIVE
album and video production.

The band broke up in 1996, and rumors are now that they are getting back together.
No hard feelings or recriminations,
just that they have been touring a LOT over the last 3-4 years, and it is
really stressful. Duncan and Ivan are doing solo projects, I think, and
the vast majority of the band is continuing to play together as The Vast Majority.
Driving bass guitar, the hottest electric fiddle you'll ever hear, and powerful
bagpipes characterize this young band from Scotland. I have seen them live
three times now, and would go again in an instant... they put on one of the
best live shows you'll ever see. The first and third times have been at
The Ark in Ann Arbor, and the second
was at the Edinburgh International Festival (click here for my review of the latter performance). In my humble opinion,
their recordings never quite match the energy of their live performances,
but I noticed at the most recent performance, this month at the Ark, that
they didn't need hardly any time to warm up, and seem to be maturing as a
band, so I expect to see this reflected in future recordings.
