Member of The Handbell Ringers of Great Britain www.hrgb.org.uk
group was formed in October 2002 and is now one of the most active
handbell teams in Scotland, with a policy of promoting the art of
handbell ringing to the wider community. The ringers have performed
in Nursing Homes, Day Centres and Garden Centres, for Guilds, Rurals,
Craft Fairs and Flower Festivals and participate in church services.
They have been recorded for Hospital Radio Perth, have been featured
in The Scots Magazine and perform annually in Dougie MacLeans
Perthshire Amber Festival. They have provided entertainment in venues
such as Perth Concert Hall, Scone Palace, Pitlochry Theatre, St.
Giles’ Cathedral, Dundee Flower Show, Iona Abbey, The National
Museum of Scotland and, of course, Dunkeld Cathedral.
Performances always include solo ringing by Heather I.McLean, the group’s leader. As one of Scotland’s few accomplished handbell soloists, Heather is in much demand.
Heather and her fellow soloist Margaret Davidson perform as the duo “Handbell Harmony” in Dunkeld Cathedral on Wednesday afternoons throughout the summer.
