Great Glen Gig lives up to its name
CROWDS gathered in Lochaber Rural Complex for a night of singing, piping and dancing on Saturday (July 9) as the first Great Glen Gig took place.
The Gig was organised by Isobel and Linda Campbell and the Lochaber Rural Education Trust team as a fundraiser for the facility.
The atmosphere was great on the night, with the whole mart filled with the music and people having a good time.
Kirsty Kyle, who organises the Caol gala day, was there with some friends.
She described the gig as a ‘brilliant night’.
The youngsters of the Lochaber Rural Complex Gaelic Choir performed at the start of the night and they were followed by Sandy Cameron on the bagpipes.
Robert Robertson performed both solo and as part of Skippinish, who had reunited for the night.
They played a mix of traditional Scottish, Gaelic and also more mainstream pop music
Most of the traditional ceilidh tunes were performed by Andrew MacDonald and his ceilidh band.
Organiser Isobel said: ‘It’s absolutely brilliant. I’m very happy and the children were excellent.’
She added: ‘We’ve had big requests to do one next year already.’
