Margaret Finlayson – Wall of Rock, Lossiemouth, September 2014

Margaret Finlayson is a firm favourite of ours, having played the Wall of Rock every single year before it came to an end. We’re so glad that we could record what she can do and show her off a bit. In the course of those five years Margaret left school, took to university and scored a teaching job at Banff Academy – and still finds time to do the gig circuit in Aberdeen every other weekend! We are definitely very proud of the journey she’s made!
