Iona, a folksinger and finalist in BBC Radio Scotland's Young Traditional Musician 2017, will present an evening of Scottish music including items from the rich musical heritage of her native Aberdeenshire.  She will be joined by friends and fellow musicians Koshka Duff (piano) and Carol Anderson (fiddle).  We have a tradition of providing a platform for young musicians who go on to achieve success in their profession and this event continues that pattern.

Birthday Festival Dinner

 at The Caledonian Club

We have nearly 150 years experience of running Burns Suppers so we are confident this one will be good.  It will have all the usual ingredients of haggis, piper, toasts, music as well as great food and beverages.  Our star performer this year will be the multi-talented Fiona Kennedy OBE DL.

For our further enjoyment the evening will conclude with ceilidh dancing to live music with an experienced caller.
