The Jimmy Shand Story
Wed 07 Mar 2018

Join us for a celebration of the life and music of the legendary Scottish accordion player Jimmy Shand. Jimmy was a Celtic music superstar long before the terms Celtic music or superstar had been coined.

Brandon McPhee the young vituoso British champion recreates the unique Shand ‘Hohner Morino’ sound including toe tapping renditions of signature tunes such as The Bluebell Polka and Whistling Rufus. Worldwide Jimmy Shand’s album sales outsold Elvis Presley and the Beatles put together. Not bad going for the quiet and dignified gentleman from Auchtermuchty!

Show narration by the popular Scottish Dance band leader Ian
