This event was part of a series of "Davy Henderson's Peerie Christmas sprees" . These "sprees" were started by the late Davy Henderson who personally organised and funded them. They are now being brought back by his son Kevin, with the support of Shetland Arts and Atlantic Edge Music Services. That  Kevin was a key part of the concerts as fiddler with The Boys of the Lough was extremely fitting.

Haltadans were first on and gave a very polished performance, featuring a number of the tracks for their new EP. They were followed by Megan & Lauren, winners of this years Shetlands got Talent, they did not disappoint and their close harmonies were much appreciated by a receptive audience.

Then came the main attraction; The Boys of the Lough. They excelled themselves with a wonderfull performance. Fine vocals and exceptional musicianship blended with a good measure of humour delighted the audience. Many had last seen the "Boys" live in Cullivoe in 1981 and Im sure are all are wishing its not anywhere near that long until they can get to hear them again.

Well done to you all, Davy would have been proud.
