The Bearsden Fiddlers held their Annual Rally on Saturday.  Having been given some complimentary tickets a friend and I went along and enjoyed a great concert given to a full hall.

Some of our youngsters from the Junior orchestra turned out to play.  This included some of our present players (as we have finished for the season) but also some who are away at uni but came back to do a solo spot or play just for this concert.  

And the old guard are still there both present members and visitors who come every single year since they first started having these "rallies'. 

One of my favourite people spends much of her spare time playing her fiddle for different charities.  She has now produced a CD and all the money goes to the Cleft Lip and Palate Association, a cause she knows all about as she was born with a severe cleft lip and palate and has had many, many operations in her young life.  I wrote about her playing here  in 2008.

And to top off the evening I won a bottle of Grouse whisky in the raffle!
