Quiz and concert......

Yes I admit a Quiz and Concert combo is a bit unusual. But this is Graemsay!  Irene at Breckan organises a quiz a couple of times a year as a fund raiser for our wee community hall.  She's also teaching the young ones to play the guitar and thought it would be a good opportunity for them to give a wee concert to show folk what they have learned.  Hence the quiz and concert night last week.

All on the island attended, of course.  The quiz went well, but I am slightly biased because yes I was on the winning team. Hee hee!  And the snacks on the tables were wonderful - I ate most of them on our table.... tea and biscuits for the interval while raffle tickets were sold, and the raffle drawn.

Then it was onto the Concert with Hannah, Katie and James playing guitars, led by Irene who also sang the songs.  It was a lovely performance by all concerned. Irene wrote a song about the each of the children too to introduce them (like we don't know them - haha!).

Katie and Hanna playing a tune....

James played too....

Katie got to play on Irene's precious 12 string guitar!

And all take a bow!

It was a lovely evening.  And amazingly we raised £153. Incredible considering there are just 23 of us on the island....


  1. Sounds like a great evening. It must feel like living with family as there are only 23 people.

  2. Nicely done all. Wish I could have been there.
