Ceilidh night

A great treat is in store for the people of Aberdeenshire and the Mearns for a special Ceilidh Night of Scottish music, song and dance will be taking place in the Dickson Hall, Laurencekirk on Thursday April 19 at 7.30pm.

Some of the finest young talent in Scotland have chosen Laurencekirk for the north east stop of their present “Dannsa Connections Tour”.

The musical line up includes Fin Moore who is often described as “a piper born and bred” playing the Highland, Border, Scottish Small pipes and his own reproduction 18th century pipes. The lovely Stornoway lass Catriona Watt will sing at the Ceilidh Night and once heard there will be no doubt as to why she won BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year. These musicians have hooked up with the world famous Scottish Step-Dance dance group. They promise to bring us driving rhythmic footwork, fresh new dances, energy, passion, finely crafted music, on pipes, fiddle, guitar and gaelic song in what will be a feast for the senses. Tickets £8, under 16’s £4 are available from the Dickson Hall, tel01561376896 / 07903230824 e.mail admin.dicksonhall@hotmail.com or from Michie Chemist, Laurencekirk.
