The Melodays are a long established professional musical duo featuring Bob Turner and Willie Cameron. We both have enhanced disclosure and hold current PVG membership.
Entertainers & multi-instrumentalists with more than 40 years of experience, we have performed in supported housing facilities, care homes, nursing homes, hospitals, hospices and centres for disability & supported learning throughout Scotland.
Primarily it is important to engage with audiences. To this end our repertoire offers a variety of material relevant to age group and specific needs. We always encourage audience participation where possible and include well known sing-along melodies, standards, pops, country, Scottish folk songs and catchy toe-tapping tunes on the accordion.
We like nothing better than connecting with an audience and creating an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment.
