Some of Moray’s most talented musicians will perform at the Highland Military Tattoo in Inverness next month.
Pipers and drummers from the RAF Lossiemouth pipe band will link with outfits from Forres and the Gordonstoun Schoolto play at Fort George.
Singers from Lossiemouth’s Military Wives Choir will make their debut at the tattoo, while the Fochabers Fiddlers will return after helping to launch the annual extravaganza in 2014.
They will be joined by performers from across the UK and abroad.
The event’s director, Major General Seymour Monro, said the tattoo would offer some of Moray’s most skilled musicians a chance to show off their abilities.
He said: “The Highland Military Tattoo is a great platform to showcase the phenomenal local musicians we have in this part of the world.
“We are delighted to have some of Moray’s finest young talent joining us this year, and we know that they will put on a fantastic show for our audiences.”
Event organisers have partnered with the Fochabers-based Baxters Foundation to help provide tuition for young pipers and drummers in Moray.
The tattoo will commence with a flypast from an RAF Lossiemouth Typhoon.
Personnel from the base, and the 39 Engineer Regiment at Kinloss, will then compete in an inter-services competition during the weekend.
Food and drink from Moray will also be on sale at the food and drink village at Fort George.
This year’s Tattoo runs each evening from September 9-11. There will be a matinee on the Saturday.
Tickets are now on sale from Ticketline, Eden Court and The Highlanders’ Museum at Fort George, and more information is available at www.highlandmilitarytattoo.com
