Young Moray musicians took centre stage at the weekend during a seaside celebration held on the Lossiemouth coast.
Residents from across the region flocked to the town to take part in its annual Seafest extravaganza.
As they visited numerous stalls set up near East Beach, and sampled a range of freshly cooked fish, they were treated to some original tunes performed by the area’s most promising music hopefuls.
Bands and solo acts attached to the Lantern of the North music scheme played for hours from a pavilion in Station Park.
The Lantern of the North initiative was devised to help young people develop an affinity with music, and to promote the region’s existing artists.
Organisers jumped at the chance of putting on a show when approached by Seafest, and 14-year-old Amelia Holland began proceedings at 11am on Saturday.
Amelia, who was the youngest of the day’s musicians, played piano and guitar to some self-penned songs.
She was followed by young Buckie guitarist Calum Jones and acoustic trio Midnight Pacific.
The weather remained dry until Edgar Road took to the stage at 4.30pm, but the experienced band powered through to bring the entertainment to a rousing close.
Lantern of the North chairman, Mark Conti, said: “We are keen to forge partnerships with community groups in Moray, to help our acts get a chance to play before a crowd.
“We are all about providing a platform for local music to be showcased.
“Every act was on good form, and the crowd there was very supportive.”
The RAF Lossiemouth Military Wives Choir also sang during the bash, and the pipe band attached to the airbase gave a performance.
