Arbroath Accordion and Fiddle Club are getting ready to host their first open day later this month.
Club chairman Tony Simpson explained: “We have been running our monthly sessions for many years however this is a new venture for us. The committee wanted to host something different and also raise money for a deserving cause, so we have developed our open day with the proceeds from this event going to Arbroath Town Mission. We felt that the Town Mission provides a lot of support to the local community and is a truly worthy organisation.” The open day will be at the Meadowbank Inn from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, August 23, and will feature many local and visiting musicians in a setup similar to regular meetings. The evening session begins at 7.30 p.m. and is a dance with music from the Bon Accords who recently made a lively appearance on BBC’s ‘Take The Floor’.
