Catterline is set to be a busy place this Sunday.
Catterline is set to be a busy place this Sunday.

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

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

Now a fixture in Catterline’s events calendar, fundraising this year is for The Archie Foundation which supports Aberdeen Children’s Hospital and children’s health services in North-east and North Scotland.

This year’s line-up features The Moonshiners with Dick Wardell, one of the UK’s finest acoustic blues guitarists, and Ken Muir on saxes, clarinet, harmonica and tin whistle delivering their irresistible mix of country blues, skiffle, bluegrass and early rock.

Also on the bill are Disorganised Criminals, a local band with former members of No Hot Ashes playing their distinctive blend of classic rock and blues, Catterline’s own favourites Richard Hannay and the Thirty Nine Steps with their usual melodic mix to set the feet tapping and Rogues Gallery, up and coming rockers from Aberdeen.

There will also be with the usual mix of home grown talent – a cast of thousands indeed!

The Archie Foundation ‘Makes the Difference’ for sick children and their families in the North of Scotland. They work with the NHS to provide all the ‘extras’ that really do transform a sick child’s time in hospital and even improve their health.

As well as support in hospitals, they also support community based child health teams and fund support in children’s own homes.
