FOOD FAIR MOVES TO INVERARAY
The Loch Fyne Food Fair is now a well established 'top day out' in the local calendar, attracting large numbers of residents and tourists to sample some of the best food, local produce and http://www.juliuswatch.info tag heuer replica watches entertainment on offer. Because the Loch Fyne Oysters fields that are usually used for the Fair are 'out of commission' the events have been moved to the grounds of Inveraray Castle for this year.
There is a wide range of foods sold by www.outletrolex.com rolex replica watcheslocal producers to eat on the day and to stock up freezers and larders, specially selected wines and whiskies, award winning beers from Fyne Ales, children's entertainment and craft tents.
The Farmers Market includes Loch Fyne Oysters own sea food stands, Winston Churchill Venison, Isabella's Preserves, Lambros Quality Foods, the Inverloch Cheese Company, Orkney Herrings, Barbreck Farms, Bumble Puddings, Fyne Cakes, Crystal Shortbread. Orkney Icecreams and Ayrshire Confections. The Food from Argyll Showcase has represented the area at T in thePark, Belladrum and Connect Festivals.
Music will be provided throughout the weekend, with a ceilidh on the Saturday night from the Folk Band of the Year 'Bodega'. Every member of Bodega is highly talented and versatile, and together their music has a kind of fierce energy, imagination, and joie de vivre that you don't hear very often. Their debut CD is a fine mix of songs (in both Gaelic and English) and cleverly arranged tunes underscoring the fact that this band was the worthy winners of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2006. They are well worth checking out! The band are Gillian Chalmers, pipes and whistle; Ross Couper, fiddle; Tia Files, acoustic and bass guitar; Norrie MacIver accordion, guitar, djembe, vocals; and June Naylor clarsach and piano. They are ' funky, yet respectful of traditions. They improvise. What don't they do? They don't do dull and predictable.'
