Let's Get, Let's Get, Let's Get, Let's Get Rocked!

Today is Cole Porter's birthday. We could celebrate by putting on an archives based muscial featuring witty, pun-filled adaptions of his songs.

But it is also guitaring pioneer Les Paul's birthday and we would rather celebrate that by removing the cardboard guitars and mandolins from the Orkney Folk Festival display and rocking out with them whenever there are no customers to be seen.

If you too like to 'rock,' then we invite you and your colleagues to print out the mandolin above and pretend to be either Prince, Slash or Eddie Van Halen. Only we can be Les Paul.

The display is also in honour of the St Magnus Festival for which we also have a dedicated exhibition in the library foyer from the 15th of June.
