“Ballintuim Village Hall Committee are proud that 2018 marks the 25th Anniversary of monthly dances held in the hall. To celebrate this milestone, I once again called upon Ian Hutson and His Scottish Dance Band. Ian and I put together a mix of older, newer and favourite tunes and dances for this live recording, including a dance I devised myself called The Silver Milestone. A very enjoyable evening was had by all; dancers, listeners and musicians.
On behalf of the hall committee I would like to offer our sincere thanks to the Drumderg Wind Farm Fund as this project would not have been possible without its help. All proceeds will go towards hall funds.
We are grateful to David Cunningham Jnr and Snr for recording and engineering this CD. As friends and fellow band leaders we appreciate their experience and enthusiasm in the Scottish dance band scene.
Huge thanks to Ian, Neil, Alasdair, Jim, Alasdair & Gordon for a night of great music. Special thanks also to Ian for all his work behind the scenes.
Looking back over these 25 years I’ve seen dancers and musicians travel from near and far to join us on a Saturday night. My heartfelt thanks to you all for your support and friendship, it really means a lot.”
