Packing them in at the In­ver­aray Inn

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A NEAR-CA­PAC­ITY crowd was the or­der of the night at the In­ver­aray Inn for the Novem­ber meet­ing of In­ver­aray and District Ac­cor­dion and Fid­dle Club.

Sup­port­ing play­ers were – Fyne Folk, with Sally Hall, Alex John MacLeod and Jake MacKay on fid­dles, Agnes Lid­dell on key­board and two guests, An­gus J MacColl on small pipes and Grant MacDougall on drums.

Also play­ing were Sandy Carr from Oban on melodeon; Char­lie Saune from Rothe­say on fid­dle; the Dal­ri­ada Ceilidh Band with Myles Clark on ac­cor­dion, Steve Hunter on gui­tar and Grant MacDougall on drums; Jake MacKay on moothie with An­gus J and Agnes. All their var­ied con­tri­bu­tions were much en­joyed by an ap­pre­cia­tive au­di­ence.

The guest artistes were great favourites the Char­lie Kirkpatrick Trio with Char­lie on but­ton box, Derek Hamil­ton on key­board and Ian Gra­ham on drums.

They de­lighted the crowd with a great west coast sound, in­clud­ing plenty of pipe marches and Gaelic waltzes, a cou­ple of sing-along songs from Derek and all in­ter­min­gled with cheery ban­ter and sto­ries from the inim­itable Char­lie K.

All too soon it was time for the fi­nal set of reels fol­lowed by a wee stra­mash but not be­fore chair­man Niall Iain MacLean thanked all the artistes for a su­perb night.

Next week the club wel­comes back Neil MacEach­ern from Kip­pen and his Scot­tish dance band.

The ever-pop­u­lar Char­lie Kirkpatrick Trio.
