“My heart is in the Highlands….where the Aberdeen waters flow” –  Bob Dylan.   (Taken from the opening lines of the track ‘Highlands’ from the 1997 Grammy award winning album ‘Time out of Mind” on Columbia Records.)

Royal Deeside and the Cairngorms has a very active artistic & creative community, much of whose work is strongly influenced by the landscapes and people they work amongst.The North-east of Scotland has a rich musical tradition and was at the forefront of the renaissance in British Isles folk music (and much further afield) in the 1960s. That tradition continues today with live music of all types in all sorts of venues across Royal Deeside and the Cairngorms.
