Orkney Accordian & Fiddle Club

One Wednesday we were in Orkney, the night the Orkney Accordian & Fiddle Club meets for its weekly rehearsal. The music was definitely Scottish, but with a few more waltzes and a couple polkas. I think they were picking up the Scandinavian influence. Before they started rehearsal I was wandering around the small harbor across the street and found a plaque with a seafarer’s bit of wisdom (see below). Then I found the hotel and enjoyed the music. This was a delight and the CD I got that night is one of my favorites from the trip. Fortunately, they didn’t mind my taking pictures while they were rehearsing, so I can share the experience with you.
