Spe­cial fes­ti­val

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - NEWS -

A Dum­fries mu­sic fes­ti­val is gear­ing up for a “mile­stone” year in 2018.

Next year’s Per­form in Dum­fries will be the an­nual event’s 90th edi­tion and the syl­labus was launched this week.

Pupils from Car­gen­bridge Pri­mary met with fes­ti­val chair­woman Doreen Jaap to pro­mote one of the high­lights of the year in the mu­sic scene.

Doreen said: “It’s quite a mile­stone next year.

“The fes­ti­val has gone from strength to strength af­ter it nearly folded 15 years ago but with a new com­mit­tee it has gone from strength to strength. It’s a much health­ier picture now.

“It’s a mas­sive event for Dum­fries and we’re al­ready look­ing for­ward to it.”

Through­out next March var­i­ous events in­clud­ing mu­sic, Scot­tish danc­ing and ac­cor­dion and fid­dle will take place.

Look­ing ahead Doreen Jap with Car­gen­bridge pupils Kasey, Jay, Mil­lar and Tia at the syl­labus launch this week
