Dick Lee and David Vernon at Edinburgh FC / EFC
Edinburgh FC is pleased to welcome this local duo for the first time, two mightily talented musicians with one of the most eclectic repertoires you ever likely to hear plus a sharp line in humour.

"There is no second guessing the accordion and clarinet team of David Vernon and Dick Lee. With a repertoire that is virtually the equivalent of an atlas, theyre as likely to follow a polka with a samba as take a trip down a Parisian thoroughfare en route to some Mozartian adventure. Eastern European folk dances are a particular favourite and for all that Vernon huffs and puffs at the unfairness of having to play such intricate metres in a tempo that might have left Usain Bolt in the pairs slipstream, what they call their jewaleilidh numbers  klezmer-style dances played for ceilidh dance robustness  are despatched with maximum musicality that hardly seems to tax them.

"Vernons Barry City Waltz, the dizzyingly impressionistic Roulette Wheel and jazz items including 12th Street Rag and Take Five add to the variety, with Lee equally assured in the hot New Orleans style and the cooler lines of Paul Desmond. Its an hour that passes quickly, helped by a liberal supply of anecdotes and reminiscences from a duo who might be on a stage but whose relaxed manner could just as easily place them on neighbouring bar stools. (Herald, Rob Adams Edinburgh Fringe review).
