Melodeons / Accordions / Fiddles Wanted !

4th February 2015

double-ray

As we are about to begin button accordion / melodeon and fiddle lessons, we are appealing to anybody around Uist ( or further afield) that have accordions/ melodeons, old or otherwise…any 1, 2 or 3-row boxes that are not being used, or fiddles, to consider loaning them to us  (or donating them if not wanted, or we could come to some mutual arrangement… )  The Button accordion tradition on the Islands was always very strong but is waning in recent years and players are dwindling so we are trying to address this. The fiddle went through a revival  in the last decade or so and we would like to encourage more fiddlers. Any help at all would be much appreciated.violin11_large copy
