OFTEN seen behind the camera, Glenys Slade was part of the picture when this shot was taken by Bev Lowe at Mornington’s Wednesday market.
Slade, a consistent contributor to The News with her photographs recording scenes around the town – flowering street trees, roses and catches at Mornington pier – plays piano accordion in Jack’s Band.
With Jack Kirby on guitar and banjo and Bruce Mitchell on ukulele, the band entertains during celebrations at aged care centres as well as performing regularly at the market.
“We met at the market and play old time music including such singalongs like It’s a Long Way to Tipperary, Pack Up Your Troubles, if You Knew Suzie and Roll Out the Barrell,” Slade said.
“We enjoy playing together and have a lot of fun entertaining the many people we meet.”
