This last number of months has been a mixture of very busy and quiet!
Firstly, We had our first appearance on the radio! We were featured on "A Kist o Wurds" programme, recorded at the Cairncastle Ulster Scots Festival. They played 2 sets of ours... Banjo Breakdown and the Pumpkins Fancy set to close the program.
Next came another weekend at the Port! We played in Portstewart on the Saturday just after the Airshow. It was another of the "Brighter Night Events" organised by Coleraine Council.
For the next performance, we had to travel furher afield to Ballinran, outside Kilkeel and was organised by the Ballinran Flute Band.
The start of October saw us headline a concert organised by the Ulster Scots Agency in Limavady High School. It was a night organised to promote the Ulster Scots tradition in a packed hall. We think it was fair to say that everyone had a brilliant night, with the audience responding well to our banter.
Megargy saw a close to a busy few months with the local hall full to capacity. Again, another brilliant night was had by everyone.
We had a quiet Christmas period and time to plan ahead for 2011. But soon it was January again and Burns Nights all around the country. We had 2 Burns Nights, first in Omagh Library, organised by the Ulster Scots Agency and the 2nd was in Tobermore. Neil also piped in the Haggis both nights, with a huge applause from the appreciative audience.
February was a quiet month for Rightly On as Neil was busy piping each weekend with the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland on their National tour, covering Dublin, Belfast, Galway, Mayo and Cork.
March sees a very bsy month for us and you can see all the details on our Calendar.
