Junior joined Tanninzie at the beginning of 2010, after many years on the Scottish folk scene as both a solo artist and member of various bands. A multi-instrumentalist Junior brought guitar; mandolin; dobro, and slide guitar (along with vocals) into the band’s line up.

Ever creative and keen to explore new musical horizons, Junior settled well into Tanninzie’s style and gave it an extra tweak with the addition of some subtle bluegrass and country influences.

Sadly, after a few live gigs and studio sessions, other work priorities throughout Scotland, England and the Continent meant that Junior couldn’t give Tanninzie the commitment he wished and we needed.

But when time and opportunity allow, he’ll turn up armed with an array of instruments (usually as many as he can carry) and bring his old magic back into the Tanninzie sound.

Watch out for him in our line up, sometime; it’s always a real treat!! (But meantime; check him out with us on some of the tracks playable on the web site.)
