Latest: Edinburgh - Off to a prolonged standing ovation!
New pictures at foot of page
First feedback from Edinburgh: The volume of sound and the acoustics when the pipers and Brass played Highland Cathedral had my spine tingling - literally - and that doesn't happen very often these days! After the show, I overheard a number of the audience saying how great it was, so you obviously had a lot of happy customers.

A wee poem of thanks that made my day.
Dear Ian McLennan We just had to write,
About the show, we saw tonight.
The story of tragedy in old Glencoe
Tho fresh in mind was long ago.
The Campbells and Dalrymple were a scurvy lot,
On Scotland'd history they left a blot!
Which even time's healing grace
Can never condone or even efface
The tears and pain of those who fell
You pictured it very well.
That deed is done - it's in the past
What we wish to praise is your supporting cast.
Arranged on stage - a scene of glory
Truly put the lid upon the story.
With brass band, pipers, dancers galore,
We stood in the aisles and called for more.
Moira and Stuart, voices rich and full
Emma MacInnes with her port a beul.
To all of them, and you ,we say
Thank you for a first class day!
Meanwhile we'll pass on the word, of that no fear
And spirit willing, see you show in the coming year.
Jim & Rose Brown of Inverkeithing
