  Jack Carruthers

John CarruthersJack Carruthers was from Canobie in the Borders, and appeared at many TMSA festivals as a solo performer and also with the fiddlers Tom Hughes and Bob Hobkirk. Jack died in May 1986, and I know very little else about him. I have him on a couple or records: two tracks on 'The Kinross Folk Festival 1975', and one on 'Tom Hughes and his Border Fiddle' (recorded in the late 1970s). Any other information would be gratefully received (email me).
