Gary Blair has run a very large accordion school. He has competed
in scores of accordion competitions, winning many of them. He is a past
U.K. Accordion Champion and now devotes his time between a very busy
gig schedule and teaching the accordion.
Gary Blair is a lover of all styles
of music and this reflects in his performing a wide variety of styles.
He has been Guest Artiste at many accordion clubs, festivals and ceilidh's.
In the past, he used to organise the South Scotland Accordion Championships
having taken over from his late father and mother, who both taught the
accordion. Gary has been actively involved in the last 26 U.K.
Accordion Championships, be it competing, adjudicating, performing or
organising. He is currently an Executive Committee member of the National
Accordion Organisation of Great Britain and the Gary Blair Ceilidh
Band have performed for the UK Championships Gala Evening on six occasions.
In between his rather hectic schedule of band
gigs (ceilidh's, weddings etc.) he has performed recently in Dubai and
at both international accordion festivals held at Blackpool (3 performances)
and Caister England (4 performances).
The Gary Blair Ceilidh Band have a CD
available and there is also a solo cassette recorded by Gary Blair.
