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, the Victory Hall, Aboyne 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, the tremendous Abbamania, Jersey Notes and Irish favourites, Legends of American Country – which provided much delight and look forward to welcoming more.


Sunday 10th March, 2.30pm

Deeside Community Centre Theatre, Aboyne

After the success of last year’s Mother’s Day Concert, our 2024 Concert will be held in the Deeside Community Centre, Aboyne on Sunday 10th March 2024 starting at 2.30pm. Come along for an afternoon of lively music, baking, and a cuppa, all at the bargain prices of £15 for adults, and £2 for children under 18! All welcome.

Our young musicians this year will be the JKL Duo, comprising Kerry Lynch (Flute) and Jacopo Lazzaretti (Guitar) who met almost 6 years ago when Jacopo came to Glasgow from Italy to study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. They have been together ever since and are very active within Scotland’s music scene, splitting their time between performing, recording and teaching from their studio in Glasgow.

In Aboyne, they will present a multi-faced programme starting with some highlights from their own Burns-inspired project “The International Poet”, followed by a selection of Jazz Standards arrangements and Ennio Morricone’s film music, and ending with some exciting Tangos. Described as “simply stunning” (Skye Chamber Music), the duo play music straight from the heart, using the Flute and Classical Guitar to speak to listeners all across the world.


Sunday 21st April, 7.30pm

The Barn, Banchory

Described by Steve Reich as “one of the greatest musicians in the world today,” and by Gramophone Magazine as “at the summit of percussion performance today”,
Colin Currie is the soloist of choice for many of the world’s foremost conductors.
The Colin Currie Quartet was formed in 2018 to present the diverse music written for percussion quartet. 
Comprising Colin Currie, Owen Gunnell, Adrian Spillett and Sam Walton, the Quartet performs a variety of adventurous works, centring on those by Steve Reich and composers inspired by his influential writing. As some of the world’s leading solo, symphonic and chamber percussionists, each player of the Quartet brings a different and insightful slant to the art of chamber percussion performance to collectively present “a sonic display of startling magnificence” (Observer).
Featuring a new work from Scottish composer Aileen Sweeney, this unmissable concert is being co-promoted by Woodend Music Society and Aboyne Arts & Theatre Development Group and supported by Chamber Music Scotland.
