They are Peter Morrison (pipes and whistles), Adam Sutherland (fiddles), Tom Salter (guitar), Innes Hutton (bass, percussion) Graeme Stafford (keyboards) and Iain Copeland (drums), plus The Wayward Boys Brass

The band have toured all over the world and won numerous awards, including the 'Best Live Act' at the prestigious Scots Trad Music Awards. Their inventive and unique approach always bring to its audience a true flavour of traditional Scottish music. Their music has been used for several TV, radio and DVD soundtracks, and the band were commissioned by the Scottish Ballet for an original piece performed for the first time in the Citizen's Theatre in Glasgow. In 2007 they performed at the BBC Proms in the Park in Glasgow in collaboration with the Scottish Symphony Orchestra who acted as their 'backing band'. 2008 saw them outsell all other artists in CD's at the Cambridge Folk Festival
