Active Aboyne 2011 opens this Saturday (September 10) with an illustrated talk by Jimmie Macgregor, entitled “John Muir: Wilderness Guardian” in the Deeside Community Theatre, Aboyne.
The talk is based on Jimmie’s recording trip to California, and Jimmie will bring to Aboyne a great tale of his travels in Yosemite National Park and the Sierra Nevada, and to John Muir’s home in Martinez, all told in his own inimitable style.
Active Aboyne’s Eilidh Scobbie said: “We all have seen Jimmie on the TV or heard him on the radio, but he has a great interest in nature too, as you’ll discover on Saturday.
“Jimmie tells me that he recalls performing in Aboyne some years ago with the late Robin Hall, so it will be great to see him back again!”
The evening begins at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £10 and can be obtained from the Deeside Community Theatre, tel. 013398 86222.
