Wild man of the accordion Sandy Brechin gathers together from all four corners of the car park some of his oldest chums (and a few born more recently) for the usual musical mayhem and comic capers. Fast and funky accordion tunes with big band backing – don't expect any Glenn Miller though! Bass, guitar, percussion and a variety of traditional instruments back up Sandy's own spectacular compositions, with a few folk classics thrown in for good measure. Come and enjoy some real feel-good folk music, garnished with entertaining stories of Sandy's travels and travails.
