Orquesta Latina del Norte (OLDN) is the top Latin and Salsa band in the Highlands of Scotland.

It was formed in 2008 by Campbell McCracken and the late Brian Dodds with the dual aims of having a band that could play Latin music, and more specifically having a band that could play music for Salsa dancers.

The group’s repertoire includes Salsa music, Cha Cha, Bolero, Boogaloo, etc.

See also the band’s Alter-Ego, “Bonny Vista Social Club” (BVSC), a Party Band playing Latin, Soul, R&B and Rock.

Campbell is a Salsa dancer and his wife Jermaine is a Salsa teacher. Campbell also plays in swing band Highland Swing.

Brian (sadly no longer with us) played in far too many bands for us to list them all here. He was a multi-instrumentalist and knew almost everyone involved in music in the Highlands of Scotland. 

OLDN is based in Inverness, Scotland, and rehearses at Millburn Academy on Thursday evenings.
