Band leader for Bracken Rigg Band - a traditional Scottish / Irish fiddle and accordion band (various lineups) based in the North of England (around Doncaster) for some 30 years. http://www.brackenrigg.co.uk/
Mad on Irish and Scottish trad.
My other vice is the Northumbrian repertoire - I play Northumbrian smallpipes.
Playing regularly for barn dances, the band has also specialised in the Northumbrian tradition of tunes, and in the past have played for old-time, sequence, sing-songs, bier-keller and various other continental accordion genre.
I play on piano accordion, anglo and english concertina, all of which I promote and encourage amongst learners in local sessions and clubs.
For my sins I retired from singing in cathedral choirs and took up brass band on Bb bass.
Always wanting a new musical challenge - I started playing tuned percussion in brass bands, eventually moving on to Bb bass - you can still learn new instruments in your 60s.
