Rich, story driven songwriting, enchanting acoustic pluck and a fantastic folk/rock style that just keeps giving. Welcome to the exciting new world of “The Lucky Doves”, an emerging Five piece from Scotland currently bringing their mesmerising melodies to venues far and wide. Their sound is like what would happen if you combined The Pogues and The Waterboys into one slick sound.

Front man Grant Dinwoodie first got into music as a child when he would listen to folk and traditional songs while learning to play accordion. He knew straight away that this is what he wanted to do with his life. He began gigging by the time he was Thirteen. It took him years to find his voice, but he’s finally discovered it now.

The result is a sound that is thick, worldly and oozing in originality. After playing in a blues outfit for some years he decided to move on and really immersed himself in songwriting during lockdown.

Although he’s releasing a string of new songs under his solo act, he’s currently launching onto the music scene with his latest band “The Lucky Doves”.  The sound is brought together with Band members Dave Bass – guitar, Jamie McClennan – Fiddle, Mark Irving – Bass and Fergus Henderson on Drums.
