Shetland Accordion and Fiddle Festival

Frank Thomson Trio

Accordionist Frank had been around the music scene in Aberdeen and the North-East for many years, having been a member of the Jack Sinclair Band for some 30 years.  Although he plays a wide variety of music, he is now mainly involved with Scottish Country Dance music, and plays throughout the UK, with occasional forays across the Atlantic and in Europe.

Frank is past junior champion of Scotland for traditional music, also senior champion for classical accordion, and has completed many recordings for the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, also recorded several Take the Floor programmes with his own band.

Frank has always been a great admirer of all that happens on the musical scene in Shetland, and this is his first visit to the Festival.
