Maisie's - August 2016
Thank you to organiser and participant, Billy Gilmour for his summary of the event: "Following the success of last year's bank holiday reunion bash at Pathfoot, some of the Maisie's Folk-Club regulars – John Boyd, Billy Gilmour, Sarah J Slater, Eddy Graham, Paul Higgins and Val Hendry – returned for one more huzzah. We were joined once again by members of the Union bar staff from the 80s; Marlene and Jan provided backing vocals for John in their legendary rendition of 'Blue Murder', sorry 'Blue Moon'.
We were delighted to meet a number of ex students from the early 80s ( Imogen, Gael and Sue) who, on spontaneously forming 'The Black Isle Beauties', became John's backing vocals.....to international acclaim! They even took the lead on a couple.
Agnes did a sterling job behind the bar and even served pizzas, the quality of which have improved markedly since the time of Maisie.
Overall, most of us thought this year was even better than last year, mainly because we got the use of the actual Maisie's bar – now called Studio. A wonderful weekend and with our beloved campus bathed in glorious sunshine once again, it really was another unforgettable trip down amnesia lane.
Special thanks to Jennifer Forman and Frances Slorance for supporting us throughout."
