Are Ye Dancin'?
The Story of Scotland's Dance Halls-And How yer Dad Met yer Ma!
Eddie Tobin with Martin Kielty

7 1/2" x 9 1/2" • 180 pages • color illustrations
ISBN 9781849340458 • paperback • $20.00

The first-ever inside story of how Scotland's ballrooms and dance halls remained a central part of Scottish culture throughout the 20th century. Told by the people who made it happen-the agents, managers, and promoters-and supported by anecdotes from the people who lived it: musicians, entertainers and the dancing public.

Eddie Tobin became a music manager and agent the moment he left school. He managed Scotland's first boy-band, the Bo Weevils, then went on to manage the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Nazareth, Billy Connolly, Midge Ure and many others. He then became a leading light in the Scottish entertainment industry, forging close links between license holders and the police. He is now an advisor to the Scottish government on entertainment and liquor licensing policy, the founder of the Glasgow Nightclub Owners' Forum, and the winner of many industry awards.

Martin Kielty is a musician, radio presenter and writer, also former manager of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band. He currently plays in two rock bands and works on air and online for Rock Radio. Previously he's written three books on Scottish popular culture: SAHB Story, the tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (2004), Apollo Memories (2005) and Big Noise: the Sound of Scotland (2006). He frequently appears on radio and in print commentating on Scottish musical culture.
