Alumni Summer Nights June 20

June 9, 2010

The Alumni Association is hosting a night of live music at Avogadro's on Sunday, June 20. The Scottish sensation, Old Blind Dogs! will be entertaining with music that is both fiery and folksy (with the sound of massed voices and African rhythms) and dreamy, melodious... reminiscent of string-quartet arrangements. If you purchase tickets by June 14, there's a discount!

Old Blind Dogs stand on the cutting edge of Scotland's roots revival. From left to right, band members Ali Hutton, Jonny Hardie, Aaron Jones and Fraser Stone.

Sunday, June 20, 7 p.m.
605 South Mason Street
Fort Collins

What better to do on a Sunday night than hear an international Scottish sensation?  The Alumni Association has arranged for Old Blind Dogs to perform for their Summer Nights event on Sunday, June 20, 7 p.m. at Avogadro's

Don't miss this amazing opportunity to hear a band that tours extensively around the globe. Three Weeks Festival Publication had this to say about Old Blind Dogs:

"...The quartet's overwhelming (at times jaw-dropping) musical skill is on full display; Ali Hutton in particular is an athlete on the pipes. What makes Old Blind Dogs special, however, is their power to evoke the wild, historic Scottish landscape and bring it to life in the contemporary world, even when they cover AC/DC." 

Bottled lightning

The music of Old Blind Dogs has been described as "bottled lighting," performed with tremendous intensity and drama... sending "waves of energy through the audience." Their repertoire also includes the beautiful, melodic, traditional ballads and love songs of Scotland, some of them two centuries old.

Old Blind Dogs is on the cutting edge of Scotland's roots revival. Dynamic percussion, polished vocals, soaring fiddle, and stirring pipes fuel the delicately-phrased melodies and traditional songs. 

The Dogs have released over ten albums and tour extensively around the globe. Don't miss your chance to hear them!
