SFW concert was a sell-out
Shetland ForWirds annual concert on May 21 was a sell-out, and a most enjoyable night. Chaired as usual by Ewen Balfour, the concert had many highlights. Songs were performed by the Skeld School choir, Brian Nicholson and Freda Leask, and by the Shanty Yell Men, who sang in Shetland dialect for the first time. Storytellers were Mary Blance and Davy Cooper; Shetland humour was provided by Tamar and Beenie, and the Ronas Drama Group; and music by the 2012 Young fiddler of the Year Laura Smith, accompanied by Martin Henderson, and by Shetland Heritage Fiddlers. We fairly enjoyed it fae start ta feenish!
