A TRUE slice of Scotland came to the Upper Hunter as the annual ‘Celtic Fling’ was performed at St Joseph’s High School, Aberdeen.
Guests enjoyed music courtesy of Scone Pipes and Drums, Scottish dance band Cool Finn Mac and Aberdeen local Jan Sinclair, who sang folk songs from her homeland.
It was also an opportunity for the newly-formed St Joseph’s Pipes and Drums band to perform a demonstration in front of a live audience.
Students recently took up the task of learning the drums and bagpipes after they were generously donated by the Paradice family in Scone.
St Joseph’s principal John Tobin praised the Parents & Friends Committee (P & F) for putting the event together.
“It was an outstanding and memorable night, especially with the improvement by the students in the pipes and drums band; congratulations to them and their music teacher James Whiting,” he said.
“We now look forward to next year so many more can enjoy this experience.”
