Former Runrig frontman Donnie Munro performed a special Valentine’s Day acoustic concert in Montrose.

The gig in the Town Hall was a sell-out and attracted a number of a fans from across the world, including a large contingent from Germany.

Charlie Campbell, of North East Musical and Sports Promotions, who organised the concert said: “Well, that’s the curtain down on a wonderful night of music. Donnie Munro was the headliner on the bill but all the bands were very warmly received.

“Fans made the journey from as far a field as Germany and the USA and they were treated to outstanding homegrown talent.

“Firstly, young pipe rock band Gleadhraich warmed the crowd up by adding their unique touch to many favourite pop songs such as bagpipes on the Bay City Rollers ‘Shang a Lang’.

“With the crowd warmed up next to take the stage was the highly impressive Colin Clyne and the Carrons. They came to Montrose with a very impressive pedigree and showed their class from the first beat. They will leave Montrose with many new fans to add to their already growing following.

“To finish the night the legendary Donnie Munro with Eric Cloughley and Maggie Adamson took over and had the crowd esctatic for over two hours with old and new songs alike.

“He told outstanding tales, humour and music throughout from his long musical career.

“The night finished with Donnie leading the excited crowd in a amazing version of Loch Lomond.”

The next big name heading to Montrose is T’pau in March.
