About Us

It’s been 15 years since our debut gig at the Helensburgh Blossom Festival! Since then our folk n’ ceilidh trio of Andy Clark, Andy Bruce and leader Alasdair Allan have played over 300 gigs across the country at weddings, parties and the occasional pub.

Somewhere along the journey we picked up a fabulous singing bassist, Stewart Cowan, and his addition allowed the band to effortlessly mutate from ceilidh combo to a splendid covers band.

Bizarrely we became popular with Norwegian audiences and play twice a year in Bergen. We were also once described as being “even better than music” which we will take as a compliment.

The Ceilidh Band

Crowded Croft started out as a guitar and fiddle duo and sometimes that’s all you need for your event. However we usually add drums to form a three piece ceilidh band.

Our fiddle player Alasdair calls all the dances so don’t worry if your guests don’t know what they are doing.

The Covers Band

Led by our singer Stewart Cowan, our covers line up consisting of drums, bass, guitar, fiddle and vocal harmonies plays popular classics from the 50s to current day.
