Tomorrow - Wednesday 21st June - Make Music Day! 10.30am – 4.30pm (free to attend)

Celebrate Make Music Day at the Wighton! A chance to see some of our treasured music books up close and personal and to hear :

11am – 12 noon The Doolichters - Dundee’s oldest boy band. The Doolichters comprise 4 ageing but sophisticated musicians with their own peculiar take on their home city of Dundee. Currently working on the 4th album in their musical trilogy, they have taken time off from their busy recording schedule to add another live performance to their legendary world tour of Dundee (and thereabouts).

1.15pm – 1.45pm Morag Dunbar – fine traditional singer, well-known and loved across Scotland and originally from Kirkcaldy. While at Edinburgh University, she got into the lively scene, learning to play guitar, joining Edinburgh Folk Club and touring with the legendary Maggie and Liz Cruikshank. Now living in Balerno, she is one of the organisers of Balerno Folk Club, regularly performing there and, with friends, at other clubs.

1.55pm - 2.15pm Positive Notes - an Occupational Therapy Singing Group for adults with a learning disability. The group meet on Monday afternoons in the Wighton Centre & they all love to sing and have fun. The group sing everything from pop, rock, folk, jazz, motown & musicals. They also like to perform on stage twice a year with props and percussion for family and friends.

2.25pm – 3pm Wighton Singers – Wighton’s own, the group meets every Tuesday afternoon in the Wighton Heritage Centre under the musical direction of renowned singer and teacher, Amy Lord. Great voices, a wide-ranging repertoire and stunning harmonies!

In between times there will be impromptu tunes and songs from Wighton Friends and visiting musicians – bring your voice and/or instrument along and Make Music!
