Jonny Hardie co-founded Old Blind Dogs in 1929, or thereabouts. Since the band began, they have recorded 13 studio albums and two live albums. Over the years, Jonny has been involved in many other musical collaborations. He has performed with/arranged or produced over 50 CDs in his career (so far) recording and performing with artists as diverse as Kylie Minogue and The Chieftains with Ry Cooder. Jonny is currently working with fellow Aberdonians Simon Gall (in Clype) and Jenny Sturgeon. He is also musical director and writer for Dogstar Theatre Company and teaches fiddle at Aberdeen City Music School.


Jonny is joining singer Alyth McCormack, and musicians Brian McAlpine, Triona Marshall and Noel Eccles to release a Christmas single which will be available on all streaming platforms from December 11th 2020.

The single which is a cover version of Joni Mitchell's 'River' will have a video release as part of Japanese promoters 'Plankton Co. Ltd' online Celtic Christmas Concert.

Alyth said Joni Mitchell's 'River' is one of the more reflective Christmas songs. "I hope the beauty of the song and music offers a tranquil escape for listeners."

Due to C-19 restrictions, the Plankton Celtic Christmas Concert is now going online. Other performers will be Anuna, The East Pointers, We Banjo Three, Seamus Eagan (ex Solus), Sharon Shannon, Dervish, Talisk and Lunasa.
The concert will be available to view for free via Plankton's Youtube channel.
