New Year’s Eve saw another successful Hogmanay Hoolie, with villagers gathering in the Hall to welcome in 2016. In years past, it was the custom to gather at the Pottery with Andy Burt after The Bells, and the news that Andy had left a bequest to provide a New Year dram for local residents was much appreciated. Cheers, Andy!
And Cheers, Julia, for the bottle of Jura!
Other dates for your 2016 diary are:
The world-famous (well, almost!) Fearnan Pudding Night will be on Sat 20th February this year. The best and most extensive spread of home-made puddings, sweets and desserts anywhere, ever!
The first Coffee Morning of 2016 will be on Tuesday 15th March at 10.30am in the Hall.
February sees another Concert at the Big Shed: The wonderful Edinburgh Quartet, one of Britain’s foremost chamber ensembles, returns to the Big Shed on Saturday 13th February at 7.30 with a concert entitled Storm & Stress.
Storm & Stress derives from a loose translation of the German ‘Sturm und Drang’ movement of the eighteenth century, where passionate expression was given free rein in literature, but also in music with works by Haydn and Mozart at the forefront. The Quartet will perform a typical Sturm und Drang work by Haydn alongside masterworks inspired by extremes of expression by Bartók and Grieg. The program is:
HAYDN String Quartet Op 76 No 2
BARTÓK String Quartet No 3
GRIEG String Quartet
The Edinburgh Quartet are returning because they like the venue AND they like the audience…. so do come along for an enjoyable evening of mutual appreciation!
