Orkney Live

A gig program found during a tidy up this evening. Many will remember "Orkney Live" and its attempts to get bands up to play here. I remember going to Del Amitri, Magnum and Dr Feelgood and a few others. People involved in Orkney Live were (from memory) Neil Stevenson, Noel Hill, Alasdair Thom, Mark Ridgway and some others. Interesting to note that more than fifteen years later Mark is still centrally involved in promoting live music in Orkney at Fusion. I think this particular concert was in 1992 but I'm getting old so that might be completely wrong.
[They also took up the Kevin McDermott Orchestra and Blues n'Trouble, if I recall correctly - Steven]
