66th Perth Accordion & Fiddle Festival 31st October 2015
« on: October 09, 2015, 07:58:57 PM »
The 66th Perth Accordion & Fiddle Festival will take place in the Salutation Hotel, Perth, on Saturday 31st October 2015. See the website for details of competitions and other events.

The competitions include the Open Button Key Traditional Accordion Solo (British Chromatic 2 or 3 row) and the All Scotland Senior Traditional Accordion Championship (for the Jimmy Shand Challenge Shield). Last year, both competitions were won by Brandon McPhee. His winning of the All Scotland Senior Accordion Championship, the highest accolade in traditional accordion playing, was the first by a button box player since Billy McGuire in 1987. Brandon will not be competing this year, but his band will be playing in the Grand Finale Concert on Saturday afternoon.
There is a video of his 2014 winning M,S&R set. (I think the tunes are "Bill Black of Stanley", "Arlene Bowie" and "For The Record", but I'm not certain).
