Pete, Tom and Arthur bring together a wealth of song repertoire accompanied on melodeon, fiddle and whistle and gleaned directly from the many traditional singers they have known. Tom who plays fiddle and Arthur who plays whistle were members of the well respected Aberdeen based group The Gaugers along with founder member the late Peter Hall, noted folk song collector and folklorist. For several years Tom lived in Auchtermuchty in Fife but is now back in the northeast near Turriff. Arthur is originally from Aberdeen but now lives in Perth. Pete has lived many years in Fife, plays melodeon and sings many songs that he has collected directly from traditional singers both in rural Fife and among the traveller community. The three have been sharing their enthusiasm and playing together for the last several years.
Their first CD issued in 2005, Shepheard, Spiers & Watson: They Smiled as we Cam In, received excellent reviews and their second CD Over the High Hills is newly released in May 2012.
