A Scottish concert will be staged in the Reid Hall in Forfar next month to raise funds for Forther Athletic FC.

Organised by Mike McEwan, the programme includes artist such as Leonard Brown, an excellent young accordionist from Newcastle, who will be accompanied by Maggie Adamson, champion fiddler from Shetland.

This will be Maggie’s first appearance at one of Forfar Athletic’s concerts.

Also appearing on the bill on Sunday, November 16 will be the very popular local accordionist Steven Carcary who will be accompanied by the show’s resident drummer, Malcolm Ross from Arbroath.

The show will be co-compared by Eddie Rose from Pitlochry and Robert Lovie from Fyvie who will both add their own brand of comedy and song to the evening.

Making a return trip to the Reid Hall, by popular demand, will be the Angus Centre for the Performing Arts’ Irish dancers who were extremely well received on their last visit.

This is the latest in a series of popular ‘Scottish Spectacular’ concerts organised by Mr McEwan, who is a passionate fan of The Loons two arranges two events every year in aid of the football club, one during the spring and the second during the autumn.

The concert, which starts at 7.15 p.m., is sure to be a sell-out show and tickets, costing £12 for balcony seats and £10 for stalls, are available now from The Toy Castle, Castle Street, Forfar or from Mike McEwan by telephoning 01307 818765.
