Aros Exhibition Opening Night

07th November 2016
A great evening was has by all in the Aros Centre, Portree on 29th October. This was the opening night of the Sorley MacLean inspired 'An Roghainn/The Choice' exhibition.

Things started well with a free dram, courtesy of R&B Distillers, who are setting up currently on Raasay.

The evening was MC-ed by Sorley's nephew, Cailean MacLean, and up first was Gaelic singer, Arthur Cormack, who gave an inspired rendition of some traditional songs. The crowd, including Sorley's 91 year old sister were singing along! Kenneth Steven then read from his Radio 3 broadcast about the Isle of Raasay, accompanied by visuals from yours truly, and then Skye fiddle player.

Ronan Martin got toes tapping with his 'Raasay Suite of tunes, again with some visuals from myself, and Kenneth rounded the evening off with his featured poetry and my images up on the screen - which are in the gallery space until the end of the year.

If you are in Skye, pop in to the Aros Centre in Portree and have a look -
