Real Name:
Mae McKenna, George Jackson, Billy Jackson, John Martin, Peter Cairney, Alex Baird
Contraband's music was an exciting mixture of Irish and Scots traditional tunes, dramatic folk-rock arrangements of classical ballads and contemporary songs; Contraband toured all over Scotland and England.

They signed with Transatlantic Records in 1973 and recorded their debut album in Chipping Norton Studios, Oxfordshire. ''Contraband'' was released in May 1974.

Mae sang and played violin, viola and piano and joined with George and Billy's multi instrumental talents, Peter's country tinged guitars, John's expert traditional fiddling and Alec(x)'s solid drumming to create a fresh new Celtic Rock sound. Contraband disbanded in 1975.
