Scotland's famous Farmers Choir celebrated its 10th anniversary in style last weekend, with a sell-out concert in Paisley Town Hall.

The choir first started as part of the celebration for the 75th anniversary of the Scottish Association of Young Farmers Clubs and held its first concert as part of those celebrations in the newly built Hydro concert hall in Glasgow. Since then, the choir has been hard at work putting together a regular calendar of fund-raising events and in the 10 years since it first took to the stage, members have raised more than £120,000 for various charities.

For that decade, the choir has been led by the irrepressible Kate Picken as 'choir master' and ably supported by a team of musicians and helpers. Since it was formed the choir has become a very large 'family' which does, indeed, have severable families that are part of the choir.
