A wonderful show at a uniquely Scottish time of year with joyful traditional music and songs associated with Hogmanay, including rousing versions of Auld Lang Syneand Carol of the Bagpipers. The Orchestra are joined by audience favourites, Mezzo Soprano Debra Stuart, Tenor James Nicol, Craigmount High School Pipe Band and young dancers from the Myra Shuttleworth School of Dance. Hosted with plenty of humour by Jim McColl, M.B.E. (BBC's Beechgrove Garden), it is a delightful evening to end the year on.
