Baroque Concert ...

Now in need of restoration after very many years of weathering, is the original wooden tower of St Mary the Virgin Church, Raskelf.

Raskelf Church and community are actively raising money for its repair, and so last Saturday a Baroque Concert was held there.

Musicians - John Dunford (organ and harpsichord), Ray Ross (flute and recorder), the Vicar, Revd. Margaret Young (flute and oboe) and Nicky Woods (cello) entertained a very appreciative audience with a variety of music from the 16th and 17th centuries.
