Dave is the founding member of North Sea Gas and has built up a reputation for rousing vocals, heartfelt ballads and a sense of on-stage fun. Add to that a wicked tongue-in-cheek humour and you'll soon see why his music and personality has taken him all over the world.

Grant Simpson. Fiddle, Mandolin, Harmony Vocals.
Grant a full time musician who has played with many leading musicians in the folk world. He has recorded with various artists and is always working on one project or another, whether it is with his association with North Sea Gas, fiddle tuition, or organizing and fronting many of the folk music sessions in and around Edinburgh.

Ronnie, or Mac as everyone knows him, was a member of North Sea Gas 19 years ago. He left to follow his own career, which took him to Australia for 12 years, as founding member of the Celtic City Sons. Mac has a great love of Scottish folk music not to mention a great sense of humour.

Together they will entertain you with songs, new and old, great instrumentals, history and more! Their approach is professional, their arrangements thoughtful. Add to that strong vocals featuring three part harmonies and a sense of fun and you have North Sea Gas. "

Well known to local audiences although it's much rarer to get the chance to hear them on their "home ground" these days. So don't miss this opportunity if you are a NSG fan.

If you see NSG would you tell them that 'Hush, Hush, Time to be Sleeping' is not a traditional song but was written by me in 1963 and copyright by Duart Music.
Cheers,
Jim McLean

I was aware that you had written the lyrics. Is it..... "The Mist covered mountain" .......not a much older tune though?

However, I will bring it to their attention. :-)

Yes, It's my variation on the Mist Covered Mountains (pipe version). When the tune (MCM)is played on its own then it is obviously trad but coupled with my lyrics then all credits belong to me. Thanks for your help.

"August 2007 will see the release of the bands latest Album. "Rosslyn" ".
A bit of time travelling going on there?
They were recording a new Live CD a few months ago at The Lot in Edinburgh. Is it out yet?
