At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.
To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.
We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device. In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.
Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).
Chairman Niall Iain MacLean, welcomed a reasonable crowd to the February meeting of the Inveraray and District Accordion and Fiddle Club, all due to a welcome gap in the wintry weather.
Supporting players were Fyne Folk with Jake MacKay and Alex John MacLeod on fiddles and Agnes Liddell on keyboard. Also playing were Calum MacDonald on accordion; Janet Graham on accordion, accompanied by Agnes; Stuart McKeown on accordion; Jim McMillan on vocals and guitar; and Jake on ‘moothie’ accompanied by Agnes. They delighted the audience with an excellent varied selection.
Guest artistes were Neil MacMillan and his band, with Neil on lead accordion, Jack Delaney on second accordion, June Meikle on fiddle and Ian Muir on keyboard. They played a very well rehearsed programme with Neil, Jack and Ian swapping roles from time to time and a nice couple of sets by June on fiddle – all very accomplished musicians.
The chairman thanked all the artistes for a delightful evening and next week (Wednesday March 11) the club welcomes well known bandleader Graeme Mitchell from Aberdeenshire – paying his first visit to Inveraray – and his Scottish Dance Band.
