I'll be in attendance too - many years since "Ptarmigan" and I played music in Aberdeen. Anyone else coming ?

Indeed!
Which reminds me Kenny, we first played music together in Aberdeen, w-a-y back in the Autumn of 1976!
If I remember rightly too, I was playing one of these, back then!
Must admit, I'm really rather looking forward to my trip, back to the ...... Northern Riviera!
Ah the Sea, the Beaches & that glorious subtropical climate! :D

Cheers,
Dick

I fear you may be disappointed with our current climate, "Ptarmy". Better pack the long-johns. "RonP" is coming up as well. Let me know when you arrive - I'll be at "The Blue Lamp" Friday night, around 7.

For those of you who missed this event, here are two videos featuring Brendan Begley, Mary MacNamara, & Pip Murphy taken last Sunday afternoon in the Blue Lamp, at the Button Boxes & Moothies Free Reed Convention in Aberdeen.

Kenny & myself are sitting in the corner behind these three, hiding from the Free Reed Police, with our Fiddle & Flute disguised as Melodeons! :-P

Does anyone else have any photos or video clips they'd like to share? ;-)
