.... are being sold in Glasgow this Friday, along with a collection of memorabilia from his long and distinguished career in Scottish dance music.
See if this link works - the auctioneers are "McTear's".

The "Jimmy" items are towards the end of the sale.
I thought anyone with an interest in a) - melodeons, b) Scottish dance band music history - might like to know about it.
The estimates seem very low to me, considering Jimmy's place in Scottish music.

Thanks for this. I know of certain potentially interested parties, so it's good to be able to forward the news.
