REAL TIME are a Borders based band formed in 2002 by Kenny Speirs and Tom Roseburgh (both ex John Wright Band) and Judy Dinning (ex Bad Pennies and Lucky Bags). They have played with a variety of instrumentalists and now tour with Claire Mann on flute, whistles and fiddle. Their repertoire includes not only many songs and tunes from both sides of the border but also contemporary and self-penned material, and to date they have released four albums to wide critical acclaim. In 1998 Kenny released his first solo album "Bordersong" followed in March 2002 by "North Wind Blowing". The latter included five self-penned songs. His most important project has been the formation of Real Time with Judy Dinning and Joe Wright. From her earliest years Judy Dinning had a passion for music and singing and eventually she began singing and piano lessons with a local teacher in Hexham.

Shona Mooney:

Since winning the prestigious BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2006 she has appeared at international festivals such as Tønder (Denmark), gone on tour with Scottish Folk orchestra The Unusual Suspects and recorded her debut album.

‘Heartsease (viola tricolour)’ was released on Footstompin’ Records earlier this year and has captured the imagination of listeners and reviewers alike. It fuses musical agility with thematic concept, traditional Borders style with contemporary flair, and it’s no surprise that it has gone on to have plenty of positive feedback, including ‘Top of the World’ (editor’s choice) in Songlines magazine, 5-star reviews in The Herald and multiple broadcasts on BBC’s Late Junction.

“From solo fiddle to full band, the fiddle dances and sings through beds of flowers to end in an astonishing collaged séance with past Borders fiddle masters in a hymn to her homeland." — Norman Chalmers, Scotland on Sunday

A top night in store.
