After 8 Mince are delighted to announce the launch of their new CD, Edinburgh Skyline. We have chosen a selection of songs old and new, traditional, well known and self-penned. The CD is available from any band member, it costs £10. All proceeds after production costs are covered go to charity. We will be focusing on CHAS first.
It only remains for us to wish everyone a very happy Christmas, an a peaceful 2019.

After 8 Mince were completely upstaged at Dalgety Bay Sailing Club recently when the West Fife Guide Dogs team held a fundraiser night in the Sailing Club. Star of the evening was Innes, the puppy named by the team after Tom Innes. Innes, Nutmeg, Nemo and tiny Una were just some of the canine superstars who attended and indeed sang along with the band. Once again we were delighted to play for this active and successful local team, and a grand total of £520 was raised, which will go towards naming the next puppy.
Welcome Innes! The west Fife Guide Dog Fundraising Group recently introduced guide dog puppy Innes, entirely supported by donations to their Name A Puppy appeal. Innes was named in memory of Tom Innes, a tireless supporter of the charity, who passed away in 2016. After 8 Mince were deeply honoured to be asked to play a benefit gig in October, with all proceeds going towards this effort. Biggest canine audience ever!

We wish him well in his training, and offer our congratulations to all involved, we were delighted to be a tiny part of this.
Last Friday we were welcomed back to the Woodside Hotel in Aberdour by Dalgety Bay Folk Club, we all enjoyed the gig very much and the evening went by really quickly! We all hope to see Colin back there very soon and send our best wishes for his recovery.
Apologies, the website has been down for a wee while, hopefully it is now fully visible.
In the interim, the band and lovely groupies have been away to Perthshire, not to play, but to chill out. Now we may focus on the forthcoming homecoming, when we make a return visit to the Woodside at Aberdour, at the invitation of Dalgety Bay Folk Club.
No pressure …..
Rolling into the new year and warming ourselves up with some new songs for the repertoire. Looking forward to meeting old and new chums at our gigs. Be careful out here in this weather!
All of the band would like to wish everyone a happy Christmas, and a peaceful new year.
We will be playing some Christmas gigs at local care homes before we roll out the turkey (vegetarian options also available) and see out the Auld Year with a dram. We would love to welcome you to our gigs in 2017, keep an eye on the schedule as it is always being updated.
After 8 Mince enjoyed a full evening at Dunfermline Rugby Club, ably assisted by Emily, possibly our youngest helper. Most excellent stovies were had.
We followed that with a terrific reception laid on by Limekilns Church Guild, we played in their beautiful neo-classical building and wolfed down the tea, cakes and sandwiches afterwards.
Thank you one and all, it’s always a privilege to play for you and we appreciate every opportunity we are offered.
