    The temptation of a forbidden instrument was too great for four-year old lain MacPhail, who sneaked his father's button accordion out of its case in his mother's absence, and was caught soon after... playing The Rowan Tree! Driven by the irresistible forces of music and subtle rebellion, lain has become one of the greatest innovators on the Scottish music scene with his original approach to the orchestration, syncopation & chord formations of tunes, and his band's cachet big sound created by the cream of Scotland's dance musicians. Whilst their creativity and musicianship are of supreme importance, lain MacPhail and his band are consummate performers of music for Scottish Country Dancing.
