Born and bred in the
beautiful border county of Northumberland, Robert has been playing the piano
accordion since his schooldays and although competent in all musical
styles he specialises in Scottish Country Dance Music. His
appearances at Shetland and other major festivals, accordion clubs and
radio broadcasts are testimony to the respect he has earned in the business.
He regularly features on BBC Scotland's 'Take The Floor' and is the only
Englishman ever to win the Senior Scottish Traditional Accordion
Championship in Perth.
As well as his own records and CDs, Robert has played accordion in several line-ups and on many professional productions; including albums by Ewan Carruthers and Jimmy Powells.
He is available for bookings either as a soloist for small functions and session work or with his own Danelaw Country Dance Band, a band he established in 1969
Robert is from a musical family with his two sons Christopher and Graeme continuing the tradition and joining him on various projects.
