Famous Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire Singers, Musicians and Bands


Aberdeen has been the home of many fine Scottish singers and musicians who have performed throughout Aberdeenshire, Grampian, Scotland and indeed all over the World.
Mary Garden gave Operatic performances in England, France and America in over 30 roles.
Evelyn Glennie is an Ellon lass who has performed on Radio and TV and live to International audiences.
And who can ever forget the bonnie Isla St Clair from The Generation Game - whose voice is equally as beautiful as she sings traditional Scottish songs.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.
