|Celebration to mark Alasdair’s Gold Medal February 2007|
The workshop on the afternoon was enjoyable and very useful
Alasdair sends his thanks to the choir for organising the night
Over 200 people met in the isle of Mull Hotel on Saturday 24th February to celebrate the success of Alasdair Whyte winning the Gold medal and the Mull Gaelic Choir winning the Sherrif-MacMaster Campbell Trophy.
This was without doubt an old style Mull night when people came from far and wide to help us celebrate. Gaelic songs could be heard from 1pm on Saturday until 6am on Sunday morning. . The Gaelic tongue could be heard throughout the day. Who says Gaelic is dead on Mull.? The Call-Ewe Ceilidh Band from Glen Elg really gave us the true west coast lift for dancing. Their sound was unbelievable.
The day started with a workshop under the capable hands of Kenny Thompson, conductor of the Glasgow Gaelic Choir. We all thoroughly enjoyed this. After a great meal and a few sensations the party started. Alasdair MacDougal said a few words on behalf of Argyll & Bute Council, who kindly donated £500 towards the reception.
The dancing and singing went on to the small hours of the morning. The Mull Gaelic Choir would like to thank everyone who made this a super evening. First of all the Isle of Mull Hotel for being such perfect hosts, for the wonderful food they served and for allowing all the music and singing to go on. Thanks to Joan.Christine, Avis, Christine, Audrey and all the other staff.
Thanks to the band, the choirs and all the singers.
Lastly thanks to all who attended and helped make it a successful evening.
Those who came from Lewis, Skye, Uist, Islay.Taynuilt, Oban, Morven and the other places, too numerous to mention.
And last of all thanks to The Golden Boy himself for bringing this great honour to Mull and also for entertaining us last night.
A Big Thanks to all concerned.
