Sandy Brechin Band

By | Published on Wednesday 31 August 2011

‘Buckfast at Tiffany’s’. This is just one of many innovative, traditionally influenced songs that Sandy Brechin and his band entertained the audience with. The crowd warmed to them immediately as they watched and listened to the juicy accordion skills, yet even though Sandy Brechin’s accordion was the clear star of the evening, a very nice aspect of the concert was that every member of the band got his own spotlight for a little while. Andrew Mill had everyone in heaps of laughter when he sang two of his songs, another member brought tears to their eyes with his whistle melodies. One gig last year, two this year during the Festival – in thirty years, they’ll perform every night!

Acoustic Music Centre at St Brides, 25, 26 Aug, 7.30pm (8.30pm), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp218.
