Organisers of the annual Aden Folk Festival have hailed the event a huge success.

Around 50 people attended the event - now in its 24th year - at the Aden Country Park Farming Museum last Saturday.

Organised by Ugie Folk Club, the free event featured a host of musical performances by its members.

The festival was part of a weekend of events organised by the club, with a Grand Concert taking place on Saturday night at Stuartfield Village Hall.

The following day, a song-writing competition was due to take place at Longside Football Club, followed by an afternoon session.

Commenting, organiser Bill Buchan said: “We’re really made up with the big crowd here today.

“This is the biggest crowd we’ve seen in a while. This bodes well for the concert tonight and the singing competition and session tomorrow.”
