The Alford Heritage Museum hosts the ‘Hamewith Concert’ annually. This is an opportunity for primary and secondary pupils in the Alford area to showcase their talents for music and reciting poetry. The concert is named after the poem ‘Hamewith’, by local poet Charles Murray. Although the poems recited are not all by Murray, they are all in Doric. Doric is the dialect of Scots, spoken in the north east of Scotland.
The next Hamewith Concert (which is held across two evenings) is planned for 24th and 25th September 2020.
