Lunchtime Recital, Feb 7th, 1.15pm – Aandowin Trio

Aandowin are Peter Cooper (fiddle), Margaret Leighton (accordion) and Bill Shackman (cittern). The group plays a laid-back mix of Shetland and Celtic session tunes. With their usual good timing they formed just before lockdown meaning that practicing in a gazebo became the only option. They can occasionally be seen busking outside St Andrews public library until they make enough money for lunch, at which point they stop.

Admission free, donations welcome!

Sandy Brechin: Wednesday 5th May

Sandy Brechin: Wednesday 5th May 2021 1.15pm – 1.45pm

Sandy Brechin is one of Scotland’s best known accordionists, famous for his lightning-fast playing and hilarious on-stage humour. He has developed his own unique approach to the art of accordion playing and his innovative style is instantly recognisable: a combination of slick, incredibly fast finger-work on the melody and a revolutionary method of syncopation on the bass. Sandy was the first in Scotland to play professionally the small 48 bass size of accordion, which is now pretty much his trademark. Despite its small size and range, Sandy gets a huge sound out of it.

Sandy also has a great sense of humour so be ready for some fun!

Admission is free but you can donate to Sandy’s tipjar =    www.paypal.me/sandybrechin
