The Metronomes

Picture taken approximately 1960. Bert Finlayson piano (my father), Norman Brass sax, can't remember drummers name, Eddie Peace accordion, can't remember other accordion players name, but dad tells me he was related to Eddie and Dougie Cooper double bass. Dad was a teacher at Kirkwall Grammar School 1955 - 1964.

Bert Finlayson the pianist passed away this week. At almost 94 he did very well and I assume that all members are now gone
