We harped, piped, recited Burn's poetry, sang and danced the Highland Fling for residents of Highborder Lodge Care Home in Stroud on Friday. We were complimented on our voices and thanked for bringing a melodious and interactive concert to the home.

The Gallery, Cinderford

We had a warm welcome and a delicious HOT meal today at The Gallery in Cinderford.
Then struck up the Clarsach and Lowland Pipes for a public rehearsal.
We've added 'Sally Gardens' amoung others to the repertoire and Gallery owner Christine and Claire were there serving food and selling artwork, jewellery and craft items while we added atmosphere.

Earth Hour Burn's Supper

On 26th March Fyon-ion took part in St. Christophers Chuch's Earth Hour Supper. The electricity was switched off for an hour and diners ate by candle light. This was part of a global initiative so we knew others were making a cumulative contribution to the power saving and reduction in carbon footprint.
Iain played traditional Scottish tunes (some written by Robert Burns) the Lowland Pipes accompanied by daughter Fiona on Clarsach (scottish folk harp) which added to the Scottish theme along with the haggis, 'neeps'and tatties on the menu and the recitation of the 'Selkirk Grace' by Iain at the appropriate moment...

Trier Germany - those two get everywhere!

We took the flavour of Scotland to Trier in Germany, played the harp and lowland pipes, the Great Highland pipes and flung a Fling in for fun (actually this is the Scottish Lilt but it didn't illiterate as well!)
