"If you want to hear what an accordion can do in the right hands, put it in the left and right hands of
Sandy Brechin" - The Living Tradition

Sandy Brechin is one of Scotland's most famous accordion players, known for his lightning fast fingering, funky rhythms and infectious sense of humour. Sandy has toured all over the world, both solo and with a huge variety of bands, including his ever-popular ceilidh band, The Jimi Shandrix Experience. An experienced teacher and composer, he also runs his own record company, Brechin All Records, which releases some of Scotland's best traditional music.

Bob McNeill
"One of New Zealand's most prominent and gifted songwriters" - Americana UK

Bob McNeill is one of New Zealand's best known folk musicians for his work with Ben the Hoose, solo and with numerous touring acts from overseas. A sought-after accompanist with a rhythmic but uniquely delicate style on guitar and bouzouki, he is also a much lauded songwriter, with three New Zealand Music "Tui" Awards - NZ's Grammys - all for Best Folk Album.

Sandy and Bob have created a quirky, powerful partnership based on fiery renditions of Scotland's folk music: award-winning original songs and tunes, and their irresistible wit. This is their third New Zealand tour together.
