Tour Scotland video of traditional Scottish accordion music in a shop in Strathmore, Scotland. Gaelic: An Srath Mòr is a strath or Glen in east central Scotland running from north east to south west between the Grampian mountains and the Sidlaw hills. The title of Earl of Strathmore refers to this area, and the Earl's principal seat lies within it at Glamis Castle. The first cylindrical form accordion was invented by two Scotsmen, the Wymper brothers, Peter, born 1871, died 1950 and Daniel, born 1882, died 1957. Scottish Diatonic accordion player Jimmy Shand became famous in 1940, when he founded his first orchestra. He recorded numerous records and participated in many television and radio broadcasts.
