Tiree Association Annual Gathering

The third Thursday and Friday in November are always very special dates in The Tiree Association calendar of events as the Annual Gathering takes place: the 114th Gathering took place on the 20th and 21st November.

An audience, in excess of 100, soaked up the atmosphere in Partick Burgh Lesser Hall as the evening kicked off with a medley of airs courtesy of John. We were then entertained by Isobel’s witty repartee, Linda, Darren and Alasdair’s superb singing and Alan & Kyle’s exquisite instrumentals. A complimentary dram with Susan’s dumpling/ shortbread at the interval went down a treat before the audience participation started in earnest as Kathryn led us in a variety of favourites. The artistes continued the programme with some old favourites to which the audience continued to sing along. Fantastic!

Another great night followed, at Glasgow University Union, as Skipinnish played to a huge crowd of all ages. Many folk, having travelled from Tiree, had the chance to catch up with friends – old and young – in Glasgow. As you can imagine, the dancing was fast and furious; the band – phenomenal!

The committee would like to give a huge thanks to all those who entertained on both nights and a massive thank you to all those who bought tickets and joined in the tremendous fun on each occasion. Thanks also to those who donated prizes for the raffle.

I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that we have now launched our 100 club. If you require further details please contact us at contact@tireeassociation.com and remember …….. you’ve got to be in it to win it! Hope to see you at our Burns Supper 24th January 2015!
