After two great weeks of singing, we’re all ready and prepared for our concert in St. Andrew’s Church on Wednesday 27th February. We’ll be entertaining the good folk of Kirrie. along with Kirrie The Whit. Should be a good night.
Having had to cancel our session last week due to illness, it was great to be back singing again. We sang through 9 songs in preparation for our next event in Kirriemuir on the 27 February. It was so nice to see everyone again and we were all in great voice.
What a great way to end our term! Our Christmas party got off to a great start complete with lots of snazzy headwear. There were lots of games, quizzes, (we know who eats the sweets, or watches the adverts now) and laughter. Followed by the usual magnificent Angus Folk buffet.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again on January 22nd. Merry Christmas, and a very Happy New Year to all our followers.
A date for your diary. Tuesday 25 June 2019 is when we have planned to have our Summer concert. It will contain the usual mix of new and favourite songs of ours arranged by Amy Lord and under the leadership of Ali Roberts. A night not to be missed!
It was certainly blowing last night, and helped blow the cobwebs out of us! A great night of singing with Ali, a wee bit troubleshooting as well. Nothing like being prepared as we started singing through songs likely to feature in our June Concert.
Another cracking night of singing with the wonderful Amy Lord. Working on the Coventry Carol, and a good sing through of all the songs she has taught the past two terms. Some beautiful sounds, and stunning harmonies, as well as the usual fun, friendship and laughter.
Thank you to everyone who came along and made our quiz night such a success. Of course this wound’t have been possible without our quizmaster Alex. Rae. We were all winners on the night, as we had a time to chat, catch up with friends, have a laugh, and generally have a good time. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the evening.
We are slowly starting to get to grips with the challenging arrangements that Amy has given us. Challenging but lovely, and we can’t wait to start performing Lovely Molly, Yella’s on the Broom, Freedom come all ye, Farewell tae Sicily, Dainty Davie, & Thousands or More! Gosh we have been busy!
It’s good to be back after our Summer break, every nice and relaxed and raring to go! It was great to see everyone again. Amy brought a nice version of Yella on the Broom, which is sure to be a favourite, and we continued with the Lovely Molly.
We’ve had a busy few weeks, first of all singing for the good folk of Letham and Dunnichan, and then last week at Newtyle in their lovely hall. Both evenings were very well received and AF members came home with smiles on their faces and raffle prizes in their hands!
Back to normal last night when Amy returned for her last block of the session, bringing us some new songs, and we hope to solidify some of the others she had started with us. Isn’t it great to be able to drive home and it’s still daylight?
