Angus Rock Festival

A FORMER Forfar Academy pupil recently took part in the 2011 Angus Schools Rock Festival at Brechin City Hall.

Nicholas Johnson was joined by Craig McKay (Monifieth High) as a solo artist and bands Amber Lamps (Montrose Academy), North Street (Brechin High), Skylight Secret and Sacred Scarecrows (both Arbroath Academy).

The event provided uninterrupted music from 4pm until 7.30pm and was enjoyed by an audience of around 100 rock fans.

Stuart Blackwood from Falkirk gave the summing up and feedback to the bands at the end. Stuart is a great musician and true youth music worker and once again gave valuable improvement advice and hints to the bands.

The standard was very high and it was great to see all the energy and talent put such positive use.

Congratulations to all the acts for putting on such an amazing show.
