Kids’ Fun Fiddle session and tunes. This was a wee informal concert at The Dalriada, Joppa, Portobello for all the family.
We met together in the back room of the Dalriada – the perfect place, with a view to the sea, great vibe, home baking, refreshments from the bar, and amazing playing by Fun Fiddle youngsters. This was a great afternoon.
Thanks to all who took part, and those who baked too!
