After re-opening to the sounds of Jonny Hardie, Dave Cattanach and Peter Coutts two months ago, the residents of Glenbuchat will soon see a host of other musicians playing at their village hall.

The tiny Victorian hall will certainly enjoy some varied musical and other sounds soon.

On Friday, July 19 at 8 p.m. the talented young musicians of the Cairngorm Ceilidh Trail Band will make a return visit to perform and to play for dancing (Adults £6 at the door, children free).

The following week there will be a taste of the Cuban revolution as on Friday, July 26 at 8 p.m. Sol Al Sol Cuban Salsa Band will bring the music of Havana to Glenbuchat (£10 at the door).

And on Sunday, July 21 David Sole is organising a clay pigeon day at Dockington in Glenbuchat to raise funds for the Hall.

Renovation work at the 19th century-built Glenbuchat Hall began earlier in the year with the work priced at over £30,000.

Members of the Donside community pitched in with raffles and charity events raising a mighty total, with support of other interested groups, of £36,000 to see the centre upgraded.
