This album is a wonderful tribute to prolific recording artist William Hannah delivered in style by Luke Daniels.

A celebrated band leader in the 1920s and a major influence on Jimmy Shand, William Hannah made a hugh contribution to Scottish music.

Four of the UK's finest traditional players, Luke Daniels (melodeon), Neil Ewart (fiddle), Ian Carr (guitar), John Paul Gandy (piano), have come together to recreate Hannah's exciting music and playing.

A Wilkinson Excelsior c1927 (Hannah's own signature instrument) was restored specially and played on this recording along with an earlier model used by Daniel and Peter Wyper c1909.

William Hannah (1891 - 1961) was born in the mining town of Blackburn, West Lothian. Having started on the mouth organ as a boy he became well known as Scotland's premiere melodeon player by the end of the First World War, during which he served in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.

His role in the development of the modern accordion was an important one. William Hannah was a creative recording artist, with companies such as Parlophone and Columbia, and a celebrated band leader in th 1920's.
