Standing ovation for Secret North

An outstanding performance of the Secret North on 21 June received a standing ovation from an appreciative audience in a packed An Talla Mòr.

Ailie Robertson, Donald Grant, Sondre Meisfjord, Karen Tween, Jarlath Henderson and Marit Fált played new music from either side of the North Sea from their recent collaboration.

Duncan reported: “A totally brilliant concert which led to a very rare spontaneous standing ovation at the end.

“There were about 80 people there, including one honeymoon couple, several visitors from across Europe and a couple of large parties from Skye.”
