Ceilidh in Luxembourghon
A wee report of our recent trip to Luxembourg to play a school ceilidh. When Iron Broo was asked to play a ceilidh dance in Luxembourg, I drew a blank. It was a place I knew very little of, except that it was probably an advanced European country and had something to do with the...

Sarah, A Scottish Waltz for Accordionon
Sarah, is a waltz tune written by the famous Scottish accordion player, Max Houliston. Max is credited with being the first founder of an Accordion and Fiddle Club in Scotland. In 1965 he opened one in his own licensed premises, The hole in the wa', in Dumfries. I first heard this tune played about twenty years ago in the Dee Motel in Aberdeen. It was where the Aberdeen Accordion and Fiddle Club used to meet.
The Scent of Panic and the Smell of the Bogon
A wee bit of a laugh during the epidemic of Bogroll (toilet paper) panic buying which appears to be sweeping the western world driving lots of people crazy. I don't understand it and don't want to. I came across this tune called "The Smell of the Bog" and liked the title so I learned it for this moment in time to commemorate the occasion. This tune is an Irish traditional one I understand. It would be a hornpipe though I like it a wee bit faster. And the Bog might refer to the toilet or the peat bog. The lovely accordion is a Saltarelle Clifden.
