The SIXTH Balerno Music Festival is now underway. The first event of this year's prorgramme was a Dinner Discussion, with an excellent 2 course meal provided by MacKenzies of Colinton followed by an interesting and inspiring talk about The Big Noise in Raploch by Director of Music Francis Cummings. It is truly wonderful to see how making music can have such an effect on peoples lives and truly inspiring to hear how talented musicians are working to pass on their musical skills to others.
There are a wide variety of events between now and the 13th October, some free, some ticketed. At present the only event sold out is the Folk concert on Friday 11th but don't leave it too late sevaeral other events are close to being a sellout.
If you would like to help with the organising - we are particularly looking for help in the marketing and ticketing side of things - or if you have any ideas that would help improve the festival then please call our Chairman Ray Wyper on 0131 449 2956 or contact us by e-mail.
We are very grateful to our sponsors, advertisers, Friends of Balerno Music Festival and of course all the volunteers and audiences for making the festival such an enjoyable success.
