Fresh from the fringe event at The Village in March, The Rocking Recorders have wowed many with their covers of ‘Great Balls of Fire’ and ‘Beat It’. The students of Milton of Leys Primary  certainly challenge preconceptions of what can be done with recorders.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
