Hello, I'm Derek Hamilton and I've been in the business of making music for well over 50 years.

I cut my teeth playing accordion at women's guild socials and the like in a four piece band.

I formed my own trio in the sixties and played the hard circuit of working men's clubs which blossomed in that era.

I followed on from that playing resident in a hotel for supper dances, dinner dances and weddings.

For over 30 years I did functions, cruises, theatre, general dances and Scottish Country Dances with some of the best known Scottish Ceilidh and Dance bands.

I've played, piano, accordion and drums in over 70 broadcasts for BBC Radio Scotland's Take the Floor.

I've played on some 20 albums and produced and engineered another 100 or so.

My ONE MAN BAND - THE IRVINE VALLEY SOUND is a fairly new venture for me. Having always been a side man in bands it is a break away from that to fronting my own thing.

I am proud to say that I can cater for most tastes in the Ceilidh, Sequence , Old Time and Scottish Country Dance scenes.

If you flick through the pages here you will hear examples of the sound I produce at dances.
