Photos on the Stage

"Looking at the view of the dancing reveals a number of well kent faces of the time.  The photos on the top left of the rear screen show:

Jameson Clark, a popular actor (second left)

Andy Stewart (second right)

Roddy McMillan, who played Para Handy in the second series, (on the far right)"

Musicians on the Stage

"On the front left of the stage, Jimmie McGregor is hiding behind the guitar with his partner Robin Hall sitting to his left in the photo. They were a very well-known folk singing duo for many years."

"I can identify the  names of the musicians on stage in this photo:

1.  All the musicians' names given by  Bryan Gourlay in his Reply 1 above are correct.

2.  The other musicians on stage in this photo are, starting with the accordionist on the left:

-  Bert Shorthouse (accordion)

-  George McKelvey (accordion)

-  Syd Chalmers (fiddle)

-  Owen McCabe (drums - hidden in the back)

-  Jimmy Shand (accordion)

-  John Whyte (bass)

-  Norman (or Norrie) Whitelaw (piano).

This would have been the standard make-up of Jimmy Shand & his Band at this time."

David South, Geelong, Victoria, Australia:  30 August 2013

Accordionist, Scottish Dance Band leader, composer and all-around Jimmy Shand fan.
