Lochaber Music Festival success

THE 43RD Lochaber Music Festival came to a conclusion last Thursday evening with a well-attended grand concert in Lochaber High School where selected performances from the previous days were given by participants, writes Ellie Forbes.

The festival encourages participation by all young people across Lochaber and reflects the range of activities undertaken by schools and other groups.

There were many highlights during the week, not least the junior and senior Young Musician of the Year competitions, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Lochaber, and the Premier Instrumental and Vocal awards. The winners this year were, Ivan Davies (Junior Young Musician), Francesca Rose (Senior Young Musician), Rhona MacKintosh (Premier Instrumental Award), Finlay Cameron (Premier Scots Traditional Award) and Annabel Brayshaw (Premier Vocal Award).

The Burns Club of Lochaber also sponsors the festival and this year the trophy for Burns classes was won by Daniel Parfitt from Inverlochy, who entertained the concert audience with a lively rendering of Address to a Haggis.
