The Occasionals - Live

One of Scotland’s most popular ceilidh bands The Occasionals, recorded live in November 1998.

Freeland Barbour (accordion), Ian Hardie (fiddle), Kevin MacLeod (banjo) and Gus Millar (drums).

A more compact line-up for this live album, when Ian Hardie replaced Mairi Campbell on fiddle and became a regular in The Occasionals until his untimely death.

They describe their music on this occasion as a Third Collection of Scottish And Old Time Dance Music.

Really one of the most popular ceilidh/dance bands in Scotland, here capturing the real live feel.
