THE FOUNDRY BAR BAND – The Foundry Bar Band
[SPRCD1007]

THE FOUNDRY BAR BAND – The Foundry Bar Band
AT LONG LAST! Now available on CD is the original Foundry Bar Band LP first released in 1981.

Bothy songs and Scottish country music have been a part of life at the Foundry Bar in Arbroath ever since the time when the only customers were the foundry workers from over the road (the foundry has long since gone), the fisher fowk from the town, and the fairm chiels in from the Angus countryside for the weekly fairs and markets.

In 1975 some of the Foundry Bar musicians got together, entered and won the Ceilidh Band competition at the Kinross festival – and so was born ‘The Foundry Bar Band'. This, their first album, was issued in 1981 and it has been a top selling album ever since - first as an LP, then on cassette and now remastered in CD format.
