For the first time, Donnie Munro performed at the Aros Centre tonight (Friday 8 September.)

Donnie Munro and Friends were playing at Portree as part of the international Sweet Surrender tour.  

The concert proved to be so popular that a second performance was added and will take place tomorrow (Saturday 9 September.) 

The audience included fans new and old, including one who had followed Donnie's career through his early Runrig days until now and was in the audience thanks to her sister arranging a surprise night out!

Donnie expressed how glad he was to be performing for the first time at the Aros and introduced his fellow performers: Fiddle player, Maggie Adamson; Guitarist, Eric Cloughley and special guest, Iain Smith. 

One of the songs performed was written by Donnie for his wife, Teresa.  Described by Donnie as slightly jazzy, the song was an upbeat tribute to his wife.  

Maggie Adamson, the highly acclaimed Shetland fiddle player, delighted the audience with her vibrant playing.
