Nordic Fiddler Bloc fill Braes Hall

Thankyou, the good folk of Braes for supporting a brilliant concert of Shetland and Nordic fiddler msuic on 4 March. The hall was full and we were treated to a brilliant opening set from sister Jos and Elsa Galbraith whcih received a well earned call for an encore. Kevin Henderson, Olav Mjelva and Anders Hall re really quite outstanding in their field, ranging from finger-skipping Nordic tunes to slow airs almost Bach-like in their composition.

Festival of Small Halls an outstanding success!

The First SEALL Festival of Small Halls was an undoubted success with halls around Skye and onto the mainland either sold out of full for  8 nights of great concerts. Thank you everyone who got involved.
