For soloist Rhona Morrison from Denny sang her way to success when she beat stiff competition to win the Madge C Brown Gold Medal at the Mid-Argyll Mod on Saturday.

And the junior choir was placed second in the unison singing class ‘‘Poirt a Beul’’. Some members of the talented group are pictured with their conductor, Donella Macleod.

The event was held at Lochgilphead High School and was a real test of nerve for Rhona who was involved in a tie for the gold medal with Catriona McLaughlin from Taynuilt near Oban and both girls had to sing twice for the adjudicators. Rhona came out tops in the sing-off, winning by just one point.
