Review of the 39th Folk Feast
By Hamish Grant, Publicity Officer

A great weekend’s weather and venue, a great turn-out of attendees and a superb line-up of artistes all combined to ensure the 39th Folk Feast was a success in every sense of the word. The Feast opened on Friday evening with an innovative ceilidh-concert in which The Craigie Collective provided an excellent platform for the sell-out audience, with the two invited singing groups providing spirited entertainment and respite from the jigging! That was followed on Saturday by a full programme which included Maurice Dickson’s informative guitar workshop, a well-attended formal singaround, an original song competition in which George Machray proved unbeatable once again, and an evening concert in which all the artistes were in spectacular form; in particular, Robyn Stapleton followed by John Tams and Barry Coope were truly brilliant and will be remembered for a very long time by those fortunate enough to have been in The Backstage.
Once again this year, the Sunday programme provided something for everyone. A well-attended and truly entertaining “Conversation” with John Tams, a further singaround, a lively Children’s Show hosted by “The McDougalls”, and the 32nd Puff-a-Box, won by the irrepressible Irene Paterson, proved excellent warm-up acts for the final concert. On this occasion it was left to Maurice Dickson, Na Leanai and, finally, Steve Tilston and Jez Lowe to bring the Feast to a brilliant conclusion, leaving us thirsty for next year’s 40th celebrations!
Hope to see everyone back at the Green Hotel in 2018 when we will attempt to bring something very special to the table for our 40th birthday party!

Review of The McDougalls
By Anne Brotherston, Steward

Several families joined us at our Children’s Show for an hour of giggling, wriggling and singing on Sunday afternoon.
We met ‘Auntie Aggie’, ‘Max’ and ‘Morag’ the life-size rabbit! who all looked amazing, and sang Scottish rhymes and action songs. All of the children and their families joined in with the actions and rhymes.
Everyone had a great time.
A huge Thank You to the McDougalls!
