Music at Aboyne aims to bring regular live music performances to Aboyne and the wider Deeside area. So far, it has brought a number of young (and not so young) musicians to play live in Aboyne Community Theatre and in Finzean. They come in twos and threes and fours – playing a variety of music from all periods. Some play accessible classical music, some jazz, some Scottish traditional. We have even had a tribute band – Simon and Garfunkel by Bookends – which provided much delight and look forward to welcoming more.
