Trainspotting and Once Upon A Time star Robert Carlyle has told his musician daughter Ava that he would like to play the accordion in a band.
Robert can already sing and play the guitar and even sang for some of the scenes in California Solo, a movie about the downfall of a rock’n’roller who already thought he was at bottom.
He said at the time: “I was in a band when I was 16, and I’m so glad it didn’t actually follow through with that because I would have been f***ed.
“I play a guitar, just bits and bobs. Most of my friends back home can. The Gallagher brothers are friends of mine. “
Robert who reckoned it might be tough keeping up with the rock n roll life of partying too hard now presents a music show looing at the emerging music scene on Bogaloo radio and appeared to ask listeners what musical instrument they would play.
However Robert saw himself playing an instrument that has become an important part of Scottish folk bands.
He responded: “Either that or the accordion xx”
Ava replied: “Nah that seems too difficult.”
Fans loved the idea and one said: “There’s an app that’ll let you play accordion on an iPad if you want to give it some practice.”
Another added: “I see you on a trumpet to be honest.”
And someone else chirped: “I’d love to see you with a penny whistle.”
