Splendid concert brings church’s 200 year celebrations to a close

It was a double celebration at Canonbie United Parish Church on Saturday night with a concert from the Border Strathspey and Reel Society. Whilst the church was rounding-off a series of events to mark the bicentenary of the building, Orchestra Leader Barbara Lewis told an audience of 70 people that the Society had its first meeting in the Crown Hotel, Langholm, 50 years ago.

Traditional Scottish music excellence was provided with a wide range of reels, marches and medleys. This varied programme included stunning guest solo performances from a couple of incredibly talented local teenagers.

Kayla McVittie from Canonbie sang ‘O del mio dolce ador’ by Gluck along with ‘Tonight’ from West Side Story.

Will Archibald, a 5th year student at Langholm Academy, mastered 2 pieces by Bach on the cello.
