acclaimed singer-songwriter and former Runrig frontman Donnie Munro will perform at Tarland’s MacRobert Hall in November.

Donnie Munro has enjoyed considerable success as a solo artist and writer, and has recently embarked on a series of acoustic shows where he has taken the opportunity of revisiting a wide range of material spanning his career with Runrig and beyond.

The acoustic project has already resulted in major sell out shows in Denmark and this concert will be one of his few UK dates before he returns there in the new year.

He will be joined on stage by guitarist Eric Cloughley who has also worked on several of the artist’s recent studio albums as engineer.

Munro says: “Coming at the material from an acoustic perspective has been really exciting and just leads to a different way of looking at the songs - everything is much more exposed and leads to a more intimate and direct delivery and engagement with the audience.”

Munro’s Heart of America album was recently voted Album of the Year in the Scots Trad Music Awards and his concept album and live show ‘An Turas – The Journey’ was greeted with great critical acclaim.

The concert on November 16 forms part of Woodend Barn’s outreach programme, which will bring other theatre and music events to Braemar and Finzean this season, as well as a further Tarland performance from the Big Telly Theatre Company on November 3.
