The Reel Tradition by Raymond Chuchuk explores the realm of traditional Scottish and Continental music.

Showcasing a selection of marches, polka and reels and also including various different pipe marches.

Born in Musselburgh, East Lothian, Raymond quickly became interested in music at the age of 7. His father Walter introduced him to the Ukrainian Society in Edinburgh and he then went on to play Mandolin in their orchestra.

After hearing the sound of the Accordion several years later it became clear which instrument he wanted to pursue. After several years studying at the Chrissie Letham Accordion School in Edinburgh, Raymond soon became interested in going to Accordion and Fiddle Clubs.

Over the Years Raymond has been heavily influenced by all the great stalwarts of the Accordion such as the late Jim Johnstone, Gordon Pattullo, Iain MacPhail and Graeme Mitchell.
