It's been a while since I shared some music on here so let's put that right.
Calum, now thoroughly settled in at high school, started trumpet lessons two weeks ago. With James still playing the trombone and one of my nephews learning a baritone horn I've been telling them that I'm going to get them together as a mini brass band to go out and play Christmas carols in December. I'm only half joking too!
Anyway, don't worry, tonight's clip isn't of Calum's trumpet playing after only two weeks of lessons. It is, rather, his old favourite the accordion. He hasn't been playing it much over the summer and since he's never had lessons for it there isn't the same incentive to practise. He loves to learn new tunes on it though and so when he decides he wants to learn a new one, out it comes.
Last night he asked if I would teach him the Skye Boat Song, and here he is playing it 24 hours later, accompanied by yours truly.
Now before you watch it I should apologise for the strange camera angle! Dad was out, James was busy keeping Fraser quiet and David & Alasdair were playing in another room so we didn't have anyone to hold it! I just placed my phone on the piano and hoped for the best! It's the music you are listening to anyway!
