Formed in 1973, Yard Of Ale are well established for their mixture of styles and their varied repertoire. Regarded as a complete entertainment package, Scotland's favourite folk n' fun band perform a great mixture of folk, country, traditional and contemporary music with plenty of close harmony and cheeky banter. Guitars, banjos, mandolins, fiddle, harmonicas, bodhrans, washboards and kazoos, in fact anything they can rattle a good tune or rhythm out of is pressed into service

The band have recorded 3 CD albums and are featured regularly on many local, national and international radio stations. Their music was also featured in Irving Welsh's film "Ecstasy".


"Yard of Ale are currently enjoying their fortieth year of playing as a band. Consequently they rattle through their shows with familiarity. They're comfortable with playing old classics as well as new-found tracks, incorporating a range of Americana, bluegrass and Irish folk songs into their performance alongside Scottish and English folk songs". - Broadway Baby

"These guys know how to entertain with an eclectic mix of songs. It all stems from their excellent musicianship on guitars, with some banjo, mandolin and fiddle appearing in the mix". - One 4 review
