Unfortunately not, but I’ve always fancied this one. Is it much the same crowd that go to Keith, Lossie etc festivals? I’d imagine there’ll be a lot of fiddle music.

Re: Anyone for……….

Unfortunately not for me either. I was allowed off the leash at Stonehaven but that’s my lot for the year I think.

Speyfest seems to have grown big very quickly.

Me neither - I’m too tied-up with little kids! Oh, and irrelevantly, maybe you could suggest a bowing for the 2nd and 4th parts of the pipe jig ‘Donella Beaton’ (which appears on Daimh’s ‘Moidart to Mabou’ album) …?!

Re: Anyone for……….

Lots of fiddles, right enough, but not really the same crowd as Lossie or Keith. Quite a varied mix of performers and punters - from year in year out regulars to one-offs and tourists.

Shetlanders band Filska were a definite highlight for me this year and are well worth checking out (www.filska.co.uk).
