We were dithering about what to do for Hogmanay and found out that Perth Concert Hall was hosting a party. Managed to get tickets at the last minute and saw two fantastic acts - Orkestra del Sol and Session A9. O del S had us all dancing around the hall (I never thought I'd partake in a congo, ever) while showing us their own fancy moves, all to the sound of breakneck brass. Session A9 had loads of fiddles, plus drums and keyboards, and the sound was traditional, energetic, frenetic, and loads of fun. Session A9 counted down the Bells with some great pyrotechnics then we headed up to our friends' house, who were having a night off from running their (fab) B&B, Halton House, to carry on the party.
