Musicians on the Stage
"I can identify the names of the
musicians on stage in this photo:
1. All the musicians' names given
by Bryan Gourlay in his Reply 1
above are correct.
2. The other musicians on stage in
this photo are, starting with the accordionist on the left:
- Bert Shorthouse (accordion)
- George McKelvey (accordion)
- Syd Chalmers (fiddle)
- Owen McCabe (drums - hidden in
- Jimmy Shand (accordion)
- John Whyte (bass)
- Norman (or Norrie) Whitelaw
This would have been the standard
make-up of Jimmy Shand & his Band at this time."
