Just a (rather belated!) post of some photos from the Hogmanay event at Mareel. From early evening on New Year’s Eve through to the early hours of New Year’s Day local band Fiddler’s Bid led a wide range of talented artistes in a musical extravaganza that was as good a Hogmany party as I’ve been to in many a year. It was something new for Shetland and really made the most of this fantastic venue – everyone I’ve spoken to since has said what a great time it was. I know many folk were disappointed at not being there, in fact many were kicking themselves at not having bought tickets!
There was also music in the 1920s-themed cafe-bar while the venue’s two cinema screens played classic American concert films. We had a brilliant time and I’d like to say a big thanks to all the performers, staff at Mareel and sound & lighting crew who all put in such a tremendous effort. A truly great spree to kick off 2017!
