Tracey can either stroll and play christmas music or she can play with backing tracks. The latter option means she will need to be stationary and seated in one area.

Hi Peter,
Thank you for your enquiry. Tracey performed admirably and her bubbly demeanor and professional playing were the hit of the party. I am extremely happy with her performance and my guests were very impressed by her.
I have no qualms about recommending her as a performing artist to anyone who may enjoy some excellent accordion music played by a very obliging performer who can take requests and look like she is having a whale of a time herself.
Thank you.
