About this Event

Sandy and Greg have been performing together for over twenty years. For ten years of that time, Greg played fiddle in Bùrach with Sandy, as well as bass guitar in The Sandy Brechin Band, touring all over the world. Now, as a duo, they still play sets from both bands, along with tracks from Greg’s debut album, Bowstroke, featuring a mix of traditional tunes and many of Greg’s own compositions.

ReviewsFor Sandy Brechin:“If you want to hear what an accordion can do in the right hands, put it in the right and left hands of Sandy Brechin.” – The Living Tradition

In praise of Greg's first cd:"A lovely fiddle CD featuring Gregor Borland who learned his craft from master musicians Donald Riddell and Hector MacAndrew. On this, his debut CD, he has put together an excellent and imaginative programme which includes pipe marches, reels and jigs plus such gems as 'Neil Gow's Lamentation on the death of his brother  Donald ' and a gorgeous slow air from the Knockie Collection written by Neil Kennedy titled - in translation - 'I can't conceal that I prefer you'".- Footstompin’
