Auld Hat - New Heids, is a new show which is winning wide praise for being great fun and very entertaining.
The show is based on popular, well-known songs which were being sung around the Scottish folk music scene in the late 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.

Devised by Fraser Bruce, the show features Fraser, brother Ian Bruce, plus two more of Scotland's best-known musicians - Pete Clark (fiddle) and Gregor Lowrey (accordion).

Many of the old songs, with which a lot of us grew up singing in the earlier days of the Scottish folk revival aren't sung as much now as they were then; fashions change. Auld Hat - New Heids with a simple light-hearted script, many ad libs, and up to date video projection is a "revival of the revival" bringing these great songs back into currency. And it works! Audiences across Scotland are lapping it up.

"Throughout the years that Celtic Connections have been running there have been many memorable concerts. This concert will go down as one of them! It was a truly memorable night and up there with the best concerts over the years. A show designed to rekindle the songs and atmosphere of folk clubs of yesteryear with audience participation it did exactly what it said it would ... This was one of those nights you did not want to finish. People left with huge smiles on their faces raving about how good the evening was. At the start of the evening Fraser recited a poem listing the many folk clubs that used to be open over the length and breadth of the country. Sadly the majority of these clubs are no longer however, "Auld Hat and New Heids", is doing everything in its power to bring back those heady days. This show continues around the country, it would be foolhardy to miss it. For songs and laughter this is the show to go to."
