I’m off to Aberdeen for a weekend of free reed indulgence. Ian Russell of the Elphinstone Institute at Aberdeen University organizes the ‘Button Boxes & Moothies Free Reed Convention‘ that runs every four years. It’s a great line-up of concertina, accordion and mouth organ players and I’m very happy to join them.
I’ll be playing in a couple of spots on concertina and contributing to various session throughout the weekend. I’ve a workshop on Saturday morning; Northumbrian smallpipes tunes for freed reed instruments – A lot of my repetoire and style is influenced by the pipes and I’m happy to share my interest. I’m sure there’ll be time to get the pipes out as well.
There’s stil time to Book some tickets
