John Graham is the co-founder of the legendary “Clydesiders” group in 1968.
The band remained active for over 30 years until 2000. During their career the band made a number of albums for Scottish Record companies Lismor, KRL and REL. They appeared regularly on TV and Radio including such programmes as STV’s Thingummyjig and Shindig, Highway with Harry Secombe, and the Terry Wogan Show. In the eighties they appeared annually in the stage show ‘The Pride of the Clyde’ at the Kings Theatre Glasgow.
Initially the fiddler with the band, John developed into a multi-instrumentalist on Fiddle, Mandolin, Guitar and Bass Guitar. He also shared the vocal duties.
John now plays mainly in a duo with Jim Jack (Guitar, Vocals). John and Jim have been playing together for the last ten years and their act evokes much of the spirit of the folk revival with ample opportunities to join in choruses and a fair smattering of humour.
