Shetland Accordion and Fiddle Festival

Roddy Matthews & Jim Nichol

Roddy and Jim have played here many times before together and with different bands/groups.  Roddy always brings us some delightful music from his own Northumbrian and Border traditions as well as his influences from wider afield. He recently performed and tutored at The Neil Gow Fiddle Festival in Dunkeld and is a regular guest artist around the accordion and fiddle scene. He is a founder of The Coquetdale Music Trust Charity in his own native Northumberland where many of the best Shetland artistes have performed also.  Jim Nichol is a much respected pianist on the Scottish Dance Band scene having broadcast with numerous bands. His own Border hill farming background brings an understanding of the music and the ways of the hills which so compliments Roddy's playing.
