About this artwork

Tam White first sang with the Boston Dexters and later formed The Shoestring Band with harmonica player Fraser Spiers and guitarist Neil Warden. Most of the songs they perform are written by Tam White, and most are grounded in his own experience. His unmistakable voice - usually characterised as ‘gravelly’ - was used for that of Big Jazza, played by Robbie Coltrane, in John Byrne’s Tutti Frutti. Recently, Tam White has appeared on screen himself, playing the chief of Clan MacGregor in the film Braveheart.
