James and Ellen Grieve

A mother and son duo from the island of Rousay, who enjoy nothing more than the joy of playing music and having fun together.

James, a private music teacher, has progressed from his first concert and lesson on the same day, to being highly regarded as one of Orkney's finest accordionists. Ellen never let go of her childhood to play the accordion, and, after 60 years, she recently joined James in graduating with a BA (Hons) Applied Music degree from UHI.
