The local branch of wildlife charity the Whale and Dolphin Conservation will be opening the doors of the Spey Bay Icehouse this weekend for a night of folk music.

Performances on the night will include music from local musicians Larry Duncan, Mike Blackburn and Sheila and Les Wheeler.

Kate Hannigan, WDC’s Scottish Dolphin Centre Co-ordinator at Spey Bay said of the event: "Our Icehouse music events have become very popular over the last few years and it’s great to have local, talented musicians offering their support to WDC.

"Everyone at the centre is very excited about this year’s event and we extend an invite to come along and join us in this very unique venue."

The Icehouse was built in 1830 and was last used for its original purpose of storing ice in 1968, when more modern refrigeration methods were introduced to preserve the salmon caught in The River Spey. The Icehouse at Spey Bay is the largest remaining example of its kind in the UK.

The folk showcase will take place on Saturday September 13th, from 7.30pm till 9.30pm and funds raised will go to the WDC Scottish Dolphin Centre. Tickets £6 for adults - under-16s are free. Call 01343 820339 - booking is essential.
