Blues singer Tam White dies, aged 68
Veteran blues singer Tam White has died at the age of 68, after collapsing following a gym session.
The Edinburgh singer, who acted alongside Mel Gibson in Braveheart, died on Monday.
A fixture at the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival, he also supported a string of stars including BB King, Al Green and Van Morrison.
He lived in The Grassmarket until he was 13 before moving with his family to Saughtonhall and became a stonemason.
Mr White formed The Boston Dexters in Edinburgh in 1964 and, following a record deal with Columbia Records, he moved to London.
He went solo after the band split three years later.
