The Proclaimers are a Scottish band composed of identical twin brothers Charlie and Craig Reid. They are probably best known for the songs 'I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)', 'I'm On My Way' and 'Letter from America'. The band tours extensively throughout Europe and other continents. They have released nine studio albums from 1987 until the present, as well as two compilation albums and a DVD. In 2011, the band scored history in Scotland when two of their tracks, 'Sunshine on Leith' and 'I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)', were featured on Scotland's Greatest Album (2011). Craig Reid and Charlie Reid were born in Leith in 1962, and grew up in Edinburgh, Cornwall and Auchtermuchty. When they stayed in Auchtermuchty they attended Bell Baxter High School.
