About The Jimmy Shand Story

The Jimmy Shand Story

This show is a celebration of the life and music of the late Sir Jimmy Shand, prolific composer and band leader, an international star and legend of Scottish music, whose tunes continue to feature in the repertoire of most traditional accordionists and dance bands.

On stage, the music is provided by the Brandon McPhee Band. As Brandon explains, “we all know his famous tunes, but do we remember the man who did so much for our music heritage?”

Senior Scottish accordion champion Brandon, winner of the highly coveted “Jimmy Shand Shield” not to mention the numerous titles he was awarded while still in his teens.  This virtuoso is recognised across Britain and Ireland through his music along with the many appearances on stage, radio and television.

In this show, he looks back at the life and music of his idol, playing many of his favourite tunes, complimented by visual images and stories narrated live by acclaimed stage, film and TV actor Dave Anderson (Gregory’s Girl, City Lights etc). Brandon also seizes the opportunity with both hands (and how!) to demonstrate the continuing relevance and versatility of the famous Hohner Shand Morino button accordion as only he can, he also sings a song or two.

Combine the music of the old master with the brilliance of the young maestro and you have the recipe for something very special.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Jimmy Shand Story are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
