Sunday 19th June From 2:00 pm Ben Sheann Hotel Strathyre

Our first session at Ben Shean fetured Andy Bates, Tommy Anderson Mikey and Kenny Higgins, We had a small but steady audience but we were given a great treat when the Miles Family popped in. They had just stepped off a plane from Florida USA

and stopped for a short break on their journey North. They heard

music and decided to stay a while. We were glad they did as we were treated to some great Simon and Garfunkle songs with fantastic harmonies from the family. This was a real treat on a

lazy Sunday afternoon that ran on to around 8pm
