Our April meeting was on the 23rd  - Saint Georges day. So we had a Saint Geordies  free-entry buffet supper night

And what a turn out 87 guests brought more food than the tables could hold.

The entertainment was hosted by great Northumbrian Story teller Ernie Coe.  Music was provided by the Seghill Accordion band

And club member LENNIE BROON from the wrong side of the tyne SOOTH SHIELDS was guest artist.

The event turned out to be the happiest clappy night in the history of Seghill Accordion Club with everyone taking part.

Thank you is  not enough for all the support that goes into making these nights successful.


No, Iain MacPhail has not changed his accordion for a smaller one, it is just Jim Youngson presenting one of the three accordions given by the Seghill Accordion Club to assist Iain in the good work he does in teaching and encouraging young people in the west of Scotland to enjoy the rich music that comes with it.  Good luck to Iain and everyone concerned with this project from all at seghill.
