Player Bio

I started learning the accordion with Alan Shute and John Carmichael at Glasgow Fiddle Workshop around 4 years ago. This instrument is a revelation. You only need to press ONE button and you get an entire chord! I consider this my reward for hours of childhood misery in front of a piano.

At present my favorite tune with the orchestra is Margaret’s Polka. During the fast bits, I fancy I come across as a virtuoso, what with my fingers flying like crazy an inch above the keyboard. And the players around me make a great sound.
