There's a twinkle in the eye and a flash of brilliance on the keys as Marian and her band give a dazzling performance of much-requested dances.
Marian Anderson's Scottish Dance Band: Marian (accordion) with Graham Bell (2nd box), Isobelle Hodgson (piano), John Sinton (bass), & Max Ketchin (dums).
"A magnificent CD for Scottish Country dance teachers and dancing enthusiasts alike with excellent tempos throughout. Marian's choice of tunes and her arrangements set your feet tapping and all of you desperate to dance."
Dance On Magazine CD Review.
"Some excellent tracks...having a string bass certainly gives a band a good dunt." Box & Fiddle Magazine CD Review.

This is a band renowned for style, flair, reliability, innovative expertise, charm, excitement and a certain frisson of flirtatiousness…so of course it is lead by a lady! Marian and her merry band are one of the busiest on the British circuit at the moment; the tune sets on this CD demonstrate clearly how a woman’s touch can make even the best of dances just that little bit more special.
