That this House notes with regret the retirement of the Scottish Gaelic rock band, Runrig who marked the event with two spectacular sold-out shows in front of Stirling Castle; further notes the band’s extraordinary success in selling millions of albums around the world and securing top five albums in the UK, Germany and Scandanavia in an unprecedented 45 year career; thanks the band for its immense and particular contribution to Scottish music and culture and hopes that its contribution will be appropriately recognised; congratulates the band on re-introducing Gaelic and Highland culture to a new generation of Scots and then taking Gaelic culture around the world; notes the contribution of the hon. Member for Perth and North Perthshire, who was a member of the band at the height of its success; wishes the members of Runrig the very best in their retirement; and looks forward to hearing whatever musical projects might emerge from the different members of the band.
