A huge thank-you to all of you who came to our concerts this summer/autumn. In total, we played to approximately 800 people! The last two late additions were Ludlow and Burton Lazars which made for an incredible ending to our summer series. Once again, thanks to everyone who came along! It was so much fun!

We are now in the process of finalising concerts for summer 2018 and also we have several private gigs already confirmed. As soon as the summer series are confirmed, they will be added to the Diary page…hopefully by early December.

Talking of December, we are playing two Winter Concerts this year. The first is on Wednesday 20th December in the Memorial Hall, Craster starting at 7.30pm and the second is on 30th December in the Village Hall (Crossman Hall) on Holy Island starting at 7.00pm – the causeway is open 15.20 to 22.20.

The other exciting news is that we are in the middle of recording a new album. There is still a huge amount of work to do, but we hope to have a new CD ready for early summer 2018.

“These two play beautifully in unison and when Margaret plays counterpoint

to Andrew’s pipes, the sound sparkles.”

“These are seriously good players”
