Bill Bourne (guitar, vocals) Alan MacLeod (guitar, vocals)
Calgary's Bourne & MacLeod knew each other back in their band, the Tannahill Weavers beginning in 1980. In 1985 MacLeod quit the band to pursue an art career back in his native Alberta. The retirement was short lived when Bourne started chatting MacLeod up one day about some tunes he had demoed. Before long the duo was performing together under their own names and managed to appear at all the important folk festivals in 1990. In '91 they recorded an album for the CBC but ended up releasing 'Dance And Celebrate' themselves. With three successful singles, the album led to a Best Roots And Traditional Album Juno Award. The award gave them major label clout and they were able to upgrade their next release to the Attic World subsidiary of Attic Records. 'Moonlight Dancers' was produced by Brian Allan (Toronto) and released in 1992 but failed to have the same impact as the first. Bill Bourne now works with fellow folk-singer/guitarist Shannon Johnson. The duo released an album called 'Dear Madonna' in 1994.
