Norman Mackay from Cawdor in the East Highlands of Scotland has been playing the 3 row accordion since early childhood. Steeped in the Scottish tradition, he has button accordionists and fiddlers on both sides of his family.

Fantastically fast-fingered playing, great feeling and fun in Norman's own compositions, Scottish and Continental styles all with his own distinctive stamp. An impressive debut album, with some top guest musicians.

The Perfect Squeeze features eight original compositions and performances by some of Scotland's finest musicians including Ross Kennedy (guitar, bouzouki), Donald Shaw (piano), Ruairidh MacMillan (fiddle), Sonia Cromarty (cello), Greg Lawson (violin, mandolin), Phil Alexander (piano) and pipe organist William Pickvance.

"Mackay is one of Scotland's best accordionists." (The List)
