Friends of Wighton Lunchtime Recital for May Day!

From Sheena Wellington:

On Wednesday 1st May at 1.15pm, the Friends of Wighton Lunchtime Recital, in the Wighton Heritage Centre, Central Library, will feature Aberdeen singer and songwriter Bob Knight.

Bob Knight is a singer from Aberdeen who has slowly but surely been making a name for himself in the world of folk music. He is well known in North East folk circles as a singer and writer of songs in traditional style, having performed at most of the local clubs, including many events at the University of Aberdeen's Elphinstone Institute. 

Bob doesn't just confine himself to his home patch though, and has played all over Scotland, including Edinburgh Folk club, The Rolling Hills Folk Festival in Melrose, the Portsoy Boat Festival, Dougie McLean's Perthshire Amber festival and Celtic Connections in Glasgow.    More recently, at the end of August 2012, he performed in a series of six very successful concerts at the prestigious Whitby Folk Week in Yorkshire.
