A day of music and fun, all in the name of a good cause, can be found in Catterline next Sunday at the annual ‘Creelstock’ extravaganza.

This year’s Creelstock music day will take place at the Creel Inn, Catterline, on Sunday, August 16 with music and fun from 3pm.

The organisers of this year’s event have chosen CLIC Sargent to raise funds for.

Creelstock’s Joanne MacRae said: “This is Creelstock’s sixth year and to date we have raised around £10,000 for a number of charities.

“We are very pleased to support CLIC Sargent and we know first hand what great work it does to support families in the most difficult circumstances. We are all looking forward to another great and successful Catterline day.”

This year’s line-up features the usual mix of styles from mellow folk to hard driving blues with something for all tastes. Welcomed back are The Moonshiners with their irresistible mix of country blues, skiffle, bluegrass and early rock and the great singer/songwriter Ray Moore who thrilled the Creelstock crowd in 2013. Added to that are local favourites Richard Hannay and the Thirty Nine Steps and Further On, one of the North East’s leading blues bands.

Holly Taylor, fundraising manager for CLIC Sargent added: “We are delighted that Creelstock have chosen us as their charity partner this year. It’s brilliant to see that they want to raise funds for children and young people going through treatment and their families and they know how important our services are. A music festival is a great way to help us raise some vital funds while having great fun.”
