A group will aim to keep the traditional stories and songs of the north-east alive, as well as create new ones.
The Blue Toon Voices meet every week in Peterhead to share tales and create new songs and stories for future generations to curate.
The project has been brought together through funding from Aberdeenshire Council, Create Scotland and Education Scotland in an effort to bring communities together.
PhD student Claire Needler is leading the group alongside local musician Christine Kydd.
She said: “Blue Toon Voices worked with Meethill Primary and Peterhead Academy earlier this month, and now are enjoying the opportunity to get to know the history of Peterhead and Buchanhaven, as told by local residents.
“The group have already written two songs, and have ideas for plenty more.”
Ms Needler also runs the Language Cafe in Peterhead, which provides a place for new to the town to meet new friends and find out more about the region.
“Our host venue is the Buchanhaven Heritage Centre, a former school with a long and interesting history and lots of old photographs and artefacts to get the stories flowing,” she added.
“We were especially intrigued to hear about the old school desk, and the headmistress’s glasses found during recent renovations – surely they’ll feature in a song.”
The next session of the Blue Toon Voices is scheduled to take place on June 9 at the New Parish Church hall.
Sessions are also planned to take place on July 7 and 21, Sept 1, 8 and 29, and October 6 at the Buchanhaven Heritage Centre.
They are free to attend and everyone is welcome to attend.
Organisers suggest, however, that children be accompanied by an adult.
Previous guests to the sessions include former MP Eilidh Whiteford and local councillor Stephen Calder.
