On June 11, 2011 the BBC Radio Scotland programme Take the Floor paid tribute to the late Bobby Brown of Canada who passed away on May 3rd at the age of 70. He was a leading light all over Canada, Scotland and the USA and founder and leader of the Scottish Accent band and musical director of The Cape Breton Symphony Fiddlers. Sadly, he was due in Scotland just before he died to be honoured by the National Association of Accordion and Fiddle Clubs.

In this exerpt from the programme, host Robbie Shepherd (above) is joined by musical colleagues and friends Kenny and Stuart Thomson in Glasgow, Colin Dewar in Shetland and friend and drummer Fred Collins in Canada.
