“It’s good to know that the con­certs be­ing held in Dundee’s Slessor Gar­dens are prov­ing such a suc­cess,” writes a reg­u­lar Craigie reader.

“How­ever, I think the sched­ulers are miss­ing a trick by not widen­ing the mu­si­cal scope of the events.

“There are a lot of peo­ple who don’t like rock and pop, which seems to be the Slessor Gar­dens sta­ple, but so far they are not be­ing catered for.

“For in­stance, what about hav­ing a coun­try and western evening, or easy lis­ten­ing mu­sic, or tra­di­tional jazz?

“Other op­tions are op­er­atic clas­si­cal ‘pops’ – noth­ing too heavy.

“The mu­si­cal scene is so de­light­fully var­ied, yet all the pub­lic gets at Slessor Gar­dens is rock and pop!”

What do you think? What kind of mu­sic would you like to be played at the con­certs at Slessor Gar­dens? We’d love to hear. or

“Why must restau­rants and cafes play any mu­sic? Peo­ple have gone out to en­joy the food and to chat with their com­pan­ions – not to lis­ten to what is of­ten rub­bish mu­sic.

“Many a time I’ve wished I could switch off the un­nec­es­sary back­ground mu­sic.”

Do you en­joy hear­ing mu­sic when you’re eat­ing out? Let us know.

“This happy-look­ing wee sheep was in Craw­ton vil­lage in Aberdeen­shire,” says Eric Niven.
