The Porridge Men are a band from Scotland formed in the early 1990s by violinist Murray Fergusson, accordionist Iain MacPhail and piper Donald MacLeod. The band's music is a fusion of traditional Scottish music with modern influences. In June 1997, the band released their only CD, Planet Porridge, on the REL record label. The album was recorded in Edinburgh, Scotland and also featured drummer Andrew Horne and percussionist Tom Wexler.

On April 18, 2008, Edinburgh World Heritage and Meltec Films chose the second track from Planet Porridge ("Wax Reels") as the soundtrack for their short time lapse film called "Enlighten". The film contained scenes and landscapes from around the city of Edinburgh.
