Gigha Music Festival 2011

Another successful gigha Music Festival came to end in the wee hours of Sunday morning, and a 'tired and emotional' Andy C panned a few words t osum up the weekend ...

Friday: Brilliant night had by all that attended the buffet followed by fab music from Lorne,Dan and Tia,who managed to get everyone up to try and beat last years Strip the Willow record of 17minutes,could it be beaten.....yeah a whopping 36 minutes,anyone that took part send in your bruises photos to the Gigha Music Festival Facebook page....


Saturday: The weather was always going to be against us but no,we were in luck with a small skiff and then out came the sun to start the Parade from the Firestation,with a Touch of Tartan theme this year. MC Alex McPhee kept the open mike session in order for the day with additional entertainment for the kids from the Tallman on his bike and teaching kids and big wannabee kids circus acts.There were additional stalls this year selling their wares from cup cakes to candy floss,jewellry and Fab Chocolate tree ice creams to name a few. We even had a visit from Blazes the Bear who came out of retirement to say Hi to the kids and raise a laugh or two and some funds. Scrummy food was laid on by Gigha Hotel during the day and followed at tea time by a BBQ at the Boathouse,thanks to all that were involved on the day who helped and to all that attended.


Sat night: What a line up this year....kicking off with our very own Eilidh and Catriona singing alongside Kathleen MacInnes,Sinneag MacIntrye and Mhairi Hall, well done girls. Kathleen then gave us a stunning rendition some of her songs old and new, only to come back on again to join in with Breabach for a song then Breabach followed by giving us a few of their
slower melodies before the break and then gave us a foot stompin finale for the second half.


The night was finished with a good old Gigha disco into the easy hours.

Sunday: The Pipers Picnic this year had to go from Plan A,to B and then to C due to the weather finally taking place in the Gallery with wine cheese and music from musicians who managed to drag themselves from their beds and tents,thanks gain to all that made the Pipers Gallery!
Sunday night: This year Joe managed to convince Lorne and Tia to wait another night and entertain us and feed us with a chilli and curry.The crowd even managed to get Joe and Tony to join in to make a truely entertaining night onlt to be topped of by Tia who produced a set of nunchucks and a gallon of paraffin and gave us a stunning flaming display accompanied by Lorne on the pipes...only on Gigha.
Until next year(our 10th anniversary),thanks again and we hope everyone had a great time
