About CHARLEY AND THE CROPDUSTERS (RONNIE THAIN)

Charley and the Cropdusters are one of those bands that only come along now and again; like a warm summer breeze over Lochindorb.

About CHARLEY AND THE CROPDUSTERS (RONNIE THAIN)

Charley and the Cropdusters are one of those bands that only come along now and again; like a warm summer breeze over Lochindorb. Emerging in the late 60s from a small hamlet surrounded by the dense woodlands and glens of Morayshire that flank the river Findhorn, Charlie, along with his long-time compatriots, is still writing musical history. Charley's musical sidekicks have been around him for so long, he has difficulty remembering how they got there in the first place; knowing most of them since his remote village childhood.
Happily for us though, the legacy of Otis McKenzie is much more in evidence. Known as the Godfather of Highland Soul, back in the 50s Otis took his village music scene by the scruff of the neck and booted its arse until the forests echoed with finger-snappin' rhythm - shaking to the pounding beat, shimmying to the cool upstrokes and generally grooving to those oh, so heartfelt vocal modulations. With the wide-eyed McOontle and his young friends attending these soul ceilidhs before they even learned to walk, it's no wonder Otis and Shuggie before him's influences have gone a long way to making Charlie and the Cropdusters the Highland Ayatollahs of the Groove they are today

HI EVERYONE,
Firstly I would like to wish you all a ''HAPPY NEW YEAR'' from the highlands of Scotland and Cropdusters old and new......
We have been busy over the last few months putting together some new songs.
As we are primarily a live band the material has to be danceable or alternatively
singalongish with catchy hooks......I have uploaded six songs from an album titled
''ICARUS'' for you to wrap your ears around..............Enjoy and feel free to comment
or critique, Regards Ronnie
