Still buzzing from the success of the Friday night concert at the Carneagie hall everyone was well up for the Fetlar concert. One of the warmest days of the summer helped to keep everyone's spirits up, despite their very early start to make the trip north. During the afternoon musicians could be found in just about every nook and crannie of the hall with a few even outside, working on new arrangements for the evening. The result a brilliant mix of music which received wide praise among those attending. Hopefully this may lead to future events in coming years?

With the sounds of guitars, fiddles and brilliant voices still ringing in their ears the Fetlar Community are looking forward to the forthcoming events. The Fetlar Fun Day on Saturady the 26th and the Commonwealth celebrations which get going in ernest on the 28th running through to the 2nd of August. The Commonwealth celebrations will have activities running all day from 28th July to 1st August inclusive and with bands planned for both Saturdays, Fetlar is the place to be this summer !
