Midge Ure at the Strathpeffer Pavilion

Donald Matheson was at the Strathpeffer Pavilion last night to see Midge Ure and his one man acoustic set. Donald sent the Gurn an image and told us that the man still has it with the voice and played some of his and Ultravox's hits as well as some that influenced his own style. He had a local band as support (James Mackenzie and Neil Cameron from Aquascene) who played a half hour set.
Donald reports that the Pavilion is a cracking place for a gig and holds a few hundred people in quite an intimate atmosphere and there's an excellent restaurant at the back of the building called the Red Poppy. It is a locally run venue which has created around 40 part-time jobs and needs the support of the Highland community to make it work so keep an eye out for more events.
