UK Songwriting 2014 Award

Bruce & Walker's song "Ode to an Old Friend" from their last album "Born to Rottenrow" on Greentrax Records, Edinburgh has received an award for reaching the semi final stage of the prestigious UK Songwriting Contest 2014. Songs are carefully examined by an expert team of music industry judges and very few of the songs entered get to the semi stage. The award is certainly better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick!

Born to Rottenrow

The new BRUCE & WALKER CD/DVD is due to be released on Greentrax on 1st February 2014. It is called Born to RottenrowRottenrow being the name of a famous maternity hospital in the centre of Glasgow which first expelled The Bruce and Walker into the daylight... at different times of course! The CD has 12 new songs and the DVD is of a party at Ian McCalman's Studio featuring many of our older songs being sung by the assembled multitude of friends. Fraser Bruce makes a now rare public performance singing a couple of the songs which Fraser and Ian Bruce made so popular back in the day. The DVD also has an interview with Kenny McDonald of Radio Black Diamond FM (107.8). We shall be singing from one end of the UK and abroad over the next year so hope to see you and let you hear some of the new repertoire!
