The Moyle Culture Concert at Bonamargy Friary proved a great success with over 300 people attending to enjoy the mix of Scottish and Irish culture in poetry, drama, dance, music and song.
As the audience arrived, they were greeted by the tunes from piper Michael Kennedy and the mesmerising sound of the bagpipes drifting across Glenshesk and the Margy.
