We play Scottish and American folk music and regularly play for the Boise Contra Dance Society dances.  We are available for dances, weddings, and parties.  Contact Ken Pollard by e-mail or at (208) 466-3633.

We have for the past few years played a St. Andrews Day service at the First United Congregational Church in Boise, whose pastors have strong Scottish roots.  We really enjoy playing there, with the opportunity to play a variety of tunes.
