Crannog Craic Raises Funds for the Centre

LISTEN: Graham shares what a night of Crannog Craic is all about

The Scottish Crannog Centre is preparing for yet another crowd-pleasing event in the form of their ‘Crannog Craic’ events which not only provide audiences an amazing night out but also raises funds towards the future of the Scottish Crannog Centre.

Crannog Craic takes place on Thursday evenings throughout this summer from 7-8pm and guests can enjoy a fun evening of local myths and legends, told wonderfully by Storyteller at the Scottish Crannog Centre, Graham Liney.

Graham said:

“It will be a fantastic evening of all sorts of music and different stories as well.

“We’re running them as fundraisers.

“Three days after the fire, I put a call out on Facebook just in the local area and from that one post I have managed to fill every Thursday night with a different musician until the end of August.

Tonight’s Crannog Craic (Thursday 8th July) will have entertainment from musicians Terry Weston and Munro Gauld.

Graham added:

“They’ve all volunteered their services free of charge.

“They’ve all said unequivocally ‘we want to do it for free’ because we know that the Crannog is so important, and we want to do something to help.

One of the highlights of the evening is set to be a performance from Crannog Centre apprentice, Izzie who moved to the area from York to complete her apprenticeship and is now studying towards her chosen career in archaeology.

Graham concluded:

“Do come along, it’s a wonderful evening but it’s also for our fantastic cause so not only are you going to enjoy yourself but you’re also going to contribute the redevelopment of the Scottish Crannog Centre.”
