Simple, powerful and effective fiddle, whistle and melodeon underscore three big voices as Pete, Tom and Arthur revel in a colourful, broad sweep of Scots song. All three are enthusiasts for traditional song with a repertoire gained from the traditional singers they have known. Here they include songs of the sea such as Bonnie Ship the Diamond and the Banks of Newfoundland, songs from the land such as Rhynie and the uproarious title song Jock HawkÕs Adventures.

Pete, Tom and Arthur have known each other for many years and, after enjoying each others company at sessions, festivals, hogmanay and suchlike seasonal gatherings, they began to gain bookings together and formalised this as Shepheard, Spiers & Watson in 2003 for an appearance at the great Whitby Festival and they were nominated in the ScotsTrad Music Awards as Scottish Folk Band of the Year in 2006. They issued a second CD Over the High Hills in 2012.
