Borders accordionist Bob Liddle will be the guest on tonight”s (Sunday) Mary Kathleen Burke Show from 7.00pm.
Hello, I am a musician from Kelso, Scottish Borders. My main instrument is 5-row Button Accordion but I also plays Highland Bagpipes, Guitar, Keyboards, Drums, Bass and Bohdran. I am a solo artiste who plays around the Scottish Borders and further afield at clubs, functions and weddings. The accordion I use is midi-fitted and therefore I can cater for all types of music including Scottish, Country, MOR and Rock. I also play in Kelso Pipe Band
and Coldstream Pipe Band and am a regular attender and Guest Artiste at various accordion clubs in the Borders and Lothians areas, and also at Kelso Folk Club, which meets every Friday night in the Cobbles Inn, Kelso. I have played the accordion since aged 9 and have played all over the UK and at various events in France and Spain. My albums are scattered throughout the world as far as Australia and New Zealand and several of my compositions have featured on other well known Scottish Dance Band recordings and radio broadcasts. The accordion I currently play is a Roland FR7xb, which is the latest model in Roland”s V-Accordion range (Shown above ). I also play a Paolo Soprani International 5-Row Continental as pictured elsewhere on this site. Both boxes are midi-fitted and connect to a Ketron XD3 Music Expander, Korg synthesiser and Digitech Harmony Unit enabling me to play all the types of music as mentioned above along with vocals. I am available for bookings for weddings, clubs, pubs, and private functions. Also available as a piper for weddings.
