Ceilidh For A Cure – Friary, Dundee 16th October

A fine evening of entertainment, featuring a mixture of ceilidh and Cajun music with a good dose of rock ‘n roll thrown in for good measure. The event was held in aid to finance research for an eye condition known as Relinitis Pigmentosa which affects 25,000 people in the UK. All bands giving their services for free to the British Relinitis Pigmentosa Society.

Sympatico were closing their set as we arrived, but judging by the stomping on the floor their firebrand rock and trad went down a storm.

The Mad Parrot Ceilidh Band took the stage next and really know how to whip up a party. Their set consisted of Scottish and Irish jigs and reels with a rock n’ roll edge.

The Baffie Band consisting of two pipers, a guitarist, fiddler and percussionist made a tremendous sound, more for a listening pleasure rather than for dancing.

Boogalusa followed which got everyone on the floor with their brand of electric Americana.

The Mad Parrot Ceilidh Band closed proceedings with a rousing end to this family charity event.

The family of fiddler, Kevin Findlay who is in two of the bands organised the event in aid of their daughter who has been recently diagnosed with RP.
