This album describes itself really, a fine selection of recordings made between 1907 and 1935 on melodeon, concertina and harmonica.  
Included are tracks by performers from most parts of Scotland.  Jimmy Andrews and Alec Bisset from Glasgow, Donald Davidson, Willie Kemp and George Morris from Aberdeenshire, Pamby Dick from Edinburgh and William Hannah from West Lothian.  The great Fifer Jimmy Shand,  the Wyper Brothers from Lanarkshire, Dundee’s Will Powrie and his Blairgowrie born son Ian. And finally, The Silver City Harmonica Band from - Aberdeen of course, where else?
Like our other old recordings, the tracks are digitally improved for better sound clarity, but left with just a little crackle to retain some authenticity.
