Vogrie Park recently played host to a unique collaboration of storytelling, Scottish step dance and traditional music all blended into one story.

‘Lost Seasons’ is a brand new story especially created for TradFest, performed by storytellers Lea Taylor and Lindsey Gibb, Scottish step dancer Mairi Britton and musician Mairi Campbell.

Lindsey Gibb told the Advertiser more about how the performance in the park’s Vogrie House came about: “It was very good, we were very pleased. We were delighted that people turned up to see it and seemed to enjoy it.

“We did a Q and A session at the end, because it’s such an unusual combination. So there were a few questions and they all seemed to enjoy it.”
