They’re coming home again. The Macdonald Bros will be back on stage in Maybole Town Hall on Tuesday 30th November to celebrate St Andrew’s Night. Last year’s finale to the Year of Homecoming was a St Andrew’s Night in the Town hall and it was a phenomenal success.

Top of the bill were The MacDonald Bros who had come home to the town where they were born and Craig and Brian really raised the roof with their set. With over 100 artistes taking part including the Ayrshire Fiddle Orchestra and Maybole Pipe Band, the hall was filled to capacity. The night was a joint venture between Carrick Academy and the community and it was so successful that there’s going to be another one this year to see if it can be the start of an annual event and the MacDonald Bros will be there.

Last year funds were provided by Homecoming Scotland and this year the project is being part-financed by the Scottish Government and the European Community Ayrshire Leader 2007-2013 programme. Last year the whole evening had the audience, which included South Ayrshire’s Provost Winifred Sloan, clapping their hands, stamping their feet and thoroughly enjoying the night as the singers, dancers, pipers, and fiddlers went through the whole range of Scottish music.

This year, as well as Carrick Academy, the fiddle orchestra and pipe band, the three primary schools in the town will be taking part and everyone is looking forward to another great night to celebrate Scotland’s patron saint.

Tickets, £5, are on sale from Carrick Academy and June Dunlop, Florist, in the High Street.
