In my recent travels around the internet, I heard about one of the great Scottish accordion players, Jimmy Shand. Upon further investigation, I found that rather than playing the usual button diatonic accordion used in traditional folk music, Shand played a chromatic button accordion. It’s said that he was the first Hohner signature model artist and that he played his Hohner Morino all his life.
Here is an interesting photo with two great looking accordions:
There are some other photos on his website too.
Perhaps someone has some more information on these two models, or Jimmy’s signature Morino model?
