Great Glen Gig lives up to its name

The Oban Times - - LEISURE -

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.’
