The Tarland Jubilee celebrations


Yesterday afternoon at the Tarland jubilee celebrations, there was a most impressive cake, complete with an iced crown on top, along with the best Scottish drop scones, flapjacks and shortbread. The children had made bunting and their fancy dress outfits were wondrous to behold (just look at the delightful three queens above). As for the music: well, it's almost impossible not to well up with emotion when you hear the fiddle played so beautifully by Paul Anderson, who was born and brought up in Tarland. Let me know if the link works, so that you can listen to him, too...

An especial pleasure to have met you at Tillypronie this afternoon, and also to have heard how much you enjoyed the music of Paul Anderson - your link worked perfectly on the blog. You may also be interested to see him on:

Paddy, thanks so much -- and it was very nice to see you at Tillypronie yesterday. Weren't we lucky with the weather?

Lucky with the weather indeed!

And I was more lucky than I bargained for later when, at a Concert in Braemar in St Margaret's Church, (amazing place) Paul Anderson played 'Paddy of Drumniall', a tune he most kindly wrote for me (not a commission) recently. 'Drumniall' is the name of a cottage I have created on my property from former farm buildings.

I like the sound of Drumniall -- cottage and tune. And next time I'm in Braemar, I'll slip inside St Margaret's Church -- I've never been there before, but look forward to seeing it.
