Rhilochan Craic – 30 September 2017

Another evening of history, laughter and music at the old school, Rhilochan

After a warm welcome from the Heritage Chairlady, Penny Calvert (currently starring in BBC’s This Farming Life), Nick Lindsay started the evening giving a fascinating insight into some of the gems held in Clyne Heritage Society’s archive. In front of a blazing fire, Nick entertained with tales ranging from turnip-stealing children to a lonely death in a snowstorm at Garvary Burn. He spoke passionately of the importance of collecting oral histories as well as retaining records such as censuses, police reports and estate papers.

After refreshments and a raffle, the night continued with musicians from near and far playing some of the pieces that can be found on our website pages (click here for more). Talented local players were boosted by accomplished guests from outwith the Parish: the blended sounds of voice, accordion, piano, fiddle, banjo and guitar rang out into the night.

Thanks to everyone for making the evening such a great success.
