Tannahill Weavers gave thanks to Colin Melville, for his 13 year service to the band and his live feed from Australia on the night, Angus Nicolson, Iain MacInnes, Duncan Nicholson, Kenny Forsyth, and the band’s current piper Lorne MacDougall for piecing it all together. On bouzouki Ross Kennedy, and on percussion Gordie Duncan, son of the late Gordon Duncan who also played pipes with the Tannies. Making up the rest of line-up on the night were permanent members Phil Smillie on flute and vocals, John Martin on fiddle and vocals, and the man that glues it all together on stage Roy Gullane on guitar and vocals.
