Graeme Mackay is well known for his regular accordian performances in the Aviemore area in the Highlands with repeat bookings year-after-year for annual events all over the country and indeed the world!
Graeme is currently the Open Button Accordion Champion and will be joining Mary K. Burke live in studio 1 on Sunday 20 March to play a few tunes and tell us of his recent adventures in Russia. Graeme had planned to come to Celtic Music Radio last Sunday, but due to the heavy snow in and around Inverness and the Highlands, Graeme could not travel to Glasgow.
The Tin Thistle Ceilidh band played a gig with Graeme in Russia and this band are no strangers to Mary. One of its founder members Kirill Raskolenko who were recently in Scotland, appeared on the Gordon Hotchkiss ‘Hotchpotch’ programme on Celtic Music Radio. Mary has since been asked to come on a small tour of Russia and is therefores delighted to be getting some inside knowledge from Graeme on what to expect.
Graeme also runs a very successful Scottish music agency and plays with Mackay’s Dance Band and Tweed and when he is not touring and gigging Graeme also runs a Button Accordion Workshop.
Mary K Burke Show, Sunday 20 March 7.00-9.00pm
