With aptly-coloured lighting, a father and son duo took to the Masonic stage to blast out sing-along hits.

Tommy and Stewart Blue performed classics including Cathy’s Clown, California Blues, Country Road and Mr Tambourine Man in Campbeltown’s Lodge St John’s 141.

The ‘sing-along Saturday’ event lived up to its name, with tunes so catchy it was hard to keep still.

Five-year-old Billy Gilchrist got in on the action and joined Stewart on stage to sing his heart out to Penny Arcade.

The club was packed with revellers of all ages, some all the way from the USA, from 3pm until 7pm.
