Jimmy Shand playing his Hohner Morino 3-row button accordion
A waltz called 'Lunan Bay' was the first tune Jimmy composed. Because he could not write music, the musical notation was written down by his employer, Charles S Forbes, of the JT Forbes music shop in Dundee.

A Poetic Tribute - to Sir Jimmy Shand, MBE, MA



A lad Called Jimmy Shand

(submitted by David Webster)

The Weymss has aye been famous for its castles and its lairds
Its ruins and historic past, its kale and ither yairds
But still mair famous it becomes and admired throughout the land
In Weymss was born and bred a lad called Jimmy Shand

I met him at the puir hoose mony years ago
A stripling he was awfay blait and feared to tak his bow
But on the stage he stampit, man his fingerin it was grand
I could see the very hallmark stampit on the lad called Jimmy Shand
