The Jimmy Blair Accordion Orchestra will be undertaking what they call their first ‘overseas concert’ when they perform on Arran later this month.

Based in Renfrew the Jimmy Blair Accordion Orchestra is conducted and led by world famous and internationally renowned accordionist Gary Blair, whose father Jimmy Blair founded the original orchestra in the 1970s.

Whilst the members have changed over the years the orchestra has continued to entertain audiences far and wide although this will be the first time they have visited Arran.

The orchestra will be performing at The Arran Lodge, Altachorvie, Lamlash on Saturday September 29, from 7.30pm followed by a performance at the PHT in Lamlash from 4pm to 6pm on Sunday September 30, for anyone that can’t make concert.

Playing a wide range of music ranging from Scottish, classical, sing-along to folk, there is bound to be something for everyone.

Tickets for the concert are available from the Book and Card Centre in Brodick at £7.50 for adults and £5 for concession and children.
