25-09-05 Stonkin Good Night!
Well, what a stonking good night that was! That's the only was to describe Saturday evening's concert in the village hall in aid of the football club.

The evening started with a little guitar and pipes music, just to set the mood, before the Wild Sarachs took to the stage with a set of traditional tunes and songs on fiddle and strings.

Highlights included a rendition of Carradale Glen (first time I'd actually heard this sung) and rounded off with a slightly customised version of Campbeltown Loch.

Following on from the Sarachs the volume was cranked-up a notch or five and the evenings headline act, The Hugh Trowsers Band, took the stage by storm. With a blistering lead guitar and awesome electric fiddle they fired off a great set of songs in the Scottish rock genre.

For those still able to stand, the Trowsers were followed-up by a disco/dance which was still going strong when we left around 1am. The DJ (whose name escapes me) was a regular to Carradale in years gone past and was the evening's Mystery Guest.

Hearty congratulations to everyone involved in organising the evening, manning the bar, serving drinks, and for coming along and supporting the team, and not least to the artists themselves for making it such as fantastic night.

I'm sure there will be some sore heads around the village this morning - in fact I'm certain of it - so it will be interesting to see who's in the bar at lunchtime for some 'hair of the dog' medicine.
