Who's Who in Scottish Folk Music: I

Who's Who in Scottish Folk Music

Iain Ingram is best known for his song Annie McKelvie, covered by many people. In the early 1980s Iain was living in Dunoon, and teamed up with Alison Duncan, Iain Williams and Malcolm Currie to form Kilts 'n' Co-op Sandals. He now lives in Bearsden, still writing songs and doing a little performing. Ingram made a CD circa 2008, Words o Fiction.
Inn Folk, The The Inn Folk were originally Russ Paterson, Will Whyte and Alastair Lowden, who ran Dundee's Woodlands Folk Club, as well as the Brechin Folk Club in the late 1960s. The group had been performing since the early 1960s.

Innes, Heather is a singer who released on album that I know of, a cassette release called "A Song's for Singing" (Bluebell Music HS 008, 1991), on which she was joined by the likes of Stevie Lawrence, Sandy Stanage, Ross Kennedy, etc..
Itchy Fingers were based on the island of Arran and were Donal Boyle (fiddle, mandola, vocals), Damien Frame (Highland bagpipes, Scottish smallpipes), Iain Frame (guitar), Maggie Frame (guitar, vocals) and Simon Thorburn (bodhran, guitar, vocals). They released on album that I know about: "Island Homes" (Carwinshoch Music, 1993) which also featured Gillian Frame (whistle) - later of Back of the Moon fame -and Nicky Ash (bass). Itchy Fingers regularly played at the Ormidale Hotel in Brodick.
