Subject: RE: If I Had A Band I'd Call It.......
There was an occasional ceilidh band in Edinburgh called The Betty Swallocks Band about 30 years ago. At least one of its members is still gigging, posts occasionally to music forums and will probably find this thread eventually.
I think the name is actually an allusion - something from Rambling Syd Rumpo? Before my time, anyway.
