FOLK at The Salmon Bothy held a successful open mic night with 14 different performances delighting the audience, featuring stories and songs penned by the great Aberdeenshire farmer Charlie Allan.

Club regular Doug Hay, fresh from competing in the Turra Bothy Competition, gave a rendition of Lonely in The Bothy. Lorna Summers also told a Charlie Allan Story.

The night also included the Needle of Death from the pen of the late Bert Jansch, sung by Anne Rodgers.

Folk at The Salmon Bothy's Bob Philips said: "There were many other great performances too, including Tom Spiers singing about Being Afloat on the Dee in Williamson's Boat and a series of songs from the movies of 1940s and 1950s from Walter Miller. It was a great evening of entertainment.

"On Friday, December 21, from 7.30pm we will hold our Christmas special, with songs and tunes with a festive theme.

"Special guests Fair Tricket have been invited to do an extended set. The twins from Cullen, Chloe and Charlotte, are fine ukulele players and outstanding songwriters. Their energy and sense of fun is unbounded."

Earlier in the month, on Saturday, December 15, the group will welcome Mabel Duncan back to entertain. For more information e-mail Mr Philips on bobphilips25@live.co.uk
