Thanks to all those who came along to the Muckle Sing earlier this month. It was a great day with some cracking songs brought by Jennifer Sterling for us to sing and harmonise to. The Performance Platform had a good number of groups singing for us before Jennifer rounded off the day with a short concert displaying her singing and fiddling virtuosity. Thanks again to West Lothian Council for supporting the event.
