Accordion and mandolin duo, Gary and James Daley, are highly renowned musicians who happen to be father and son. Gary, on accordion, has been a staple in the Sydney music scene for decades and James, on mandolin, is well known to Mountains’ audiences from appearances with Diamond Duck and the award-winning bluegrass band, The Morrisons. Together they perform a most unusual hybrid of classical, folk and improvisation. It’s an exotic combination of instruments exploring the music of Bartok, Beethoven, Bach and Italian folk song.
