Subject: OBD's Jim Malcolm's younger brother??
From: Desert Dancer

Jim Malcolm, singer and guitarist with the Old Blind Dogs, performed here in Tucson last week. A pleasant show, but somewhere in the witty inter-song banter Jim referred to his younger brother, "who's a real traditional singer" -- "he thinks instruments are too modern; he thinks singing in tune is too modern..." -- and who, on hearing of Jim's bringing some traditional song to the 'Dogs said, "You're not going to f--- that one up too, are you?!"

So, Claire (as in Guest,Claire) and I turns to each other and says, "Ooo! Tell us more about the little brother!" (We both agreed that Jim had a lovely voice, but we preferred a more traditional style of song and presentation.)

So, anyone have any more on the little brother? Or is he among us, here?

I took Jim Malcolm tours of Scotland in 2013, and last month to Orkney and Skye. Jim's half-brother Scott Gardiner came along for part of both tours, and it was a delight to get to know him.

Here's Scott singing "Guise o' Tough" from the Greig-Duncan Collection:

And "Cairn o' Mount" from the Greig-Duncan Collection:

And a much younger Scott Gardiner in Keith British Legion bothy ballad competitions 1998:

Jim's mother, Helen Gardiner, also put in an appearance and gave us bridies and a few songs.

Scott lives in Edinburgh and you often get a chance to hear him here. He really is terrific. I first heard him at the Auchtermuchty Festival sometime in the early 90s.

I had no idea he was related to Jim Malcolm until Joe told me.
