GUITAR/VOCALS. Alan was born  in Fife, Scotland and started playing guitar at the age of thirteen. Influenced mainly at first by rock guitarists, he began to broaden his guitabulary with both classical and folk. In his early twenties he began writing and recording as a duo called Abstract Art using earlier experiences to produce two CDs. Joining this ceilidh band was inevitable as the mixture of styles was what he wanted. As a vocalist the band gives him licence to try new ideas, ensuring the commitment needed to perform.

BASS GUITAR.In 1993 Steve (Spud) bought himself a bass guitar and taught himself to play in half an hour. In 1994,along with Alan,he was playing with a rock band until 1997 when he joined ' A Band Called Frank'.
