AT TAYNUILT’s fi­nal ceilidh of the sum­mer sea­son, 10-year- old Innes Munro started off the pro­ceed­ings with a most en­joy­able per­for­mance on the bag­pipes.

Clearly Innes has a bright fu­ture in pip­ing. Tal­ented young fid­dler Ross McLeish played im­pres­sively dur­ing mu­si­cal duets with his dad, Derek McLeish, who played the flute. Ross also sang a beau­ti­ful Gaelic song.

Youth played a ma­jor part in the ceilidh and the Ar­gyll Ceilidh Trail­ers de­lighted the ap­pre­cia­tive au­di­ence with some stir­ring mu­sic.

Ceilidh Trail­ers tak­ing part were Han­nah Gillies, Anna Garvin, Mel Har­bron, Mor­ven MacFadyen, Kirsty and Rachel Camp­bell, Ross Christie and Ruaraidh Litser- Camp­bell.

Once again, Ailie Munro from the Isla Sin­clair Dancers pro­duced top- class danc­ing per­for­mances.

Taynuilt’s singing trio, He­len Watt, Au­drey Pater­son and Davy Pater­son, har­monised im­pres­sively with songs in­clud­ing Java Jive and Cal­i­for­nia Dreamin’.

Taynuilt Gaelic choir, un­der con­duc­tor Au­drey Pater­son, pro­duced ex­cel­lent Gaelic singing with three mixed choir pieces and one ladies’ piece.

Fear an taighe for the evening was Dun­can Mac­Don­ald, who kept the ceilidh flow­ing smoothly.

The com­mit­tee thanks ev­ery­one who took part and helped in any way dur­ing the sum­mer ceilidhs, in par­tic­u­lar, Moira Dun­lop for all her hard work in mak­ing the events so suc­cess­ful.
