Aberdeenshire's Glenbuchat Ballads to be performed

The BBC is reporting that the 19th Century Glenbuchat ballads, including the "Bonnie Lass o' Fyvie" are to be performed locally for the first time since their donation to Aberdeen University in 1949 and subsequent publication last year. Unfortunately, the piece does not actually state when the songs will be performed!

There's some mistake here. The ballads do include a set of "The Bonnie House o Airlie", but not "The Bonnie Lass o Fyvie".

Many thanks Makar - I was quoting the BBC's story!
