It’s been nine years since starting my research into the sixties music scene in the north of Scotland and three years since developing a blog. Local interest has been great and am still learning more from those who experienced it besides the private archives of Albert Bonici and various resources.
Recently, what had been the stage for the Two Red Shoes Ballroom of Elgin, Scotland has been cleared enough for me to enter [with permission of owner] and discover even more photos, business documents, and other promotion materials to explore the beat music scene that captured the interest and imagination of a growing youth culture. Many were inspired to pursue their dreams besides fond memories of a special time in Scotland’s cultural history. Aberdeen promoter Gordon Hardie who worked with impresario Albert Bonici through the 1960s, kept diaries of activities which I have to draw from as well. Of course, photos, and memories from those who frequented the local dance halls in the north of Scotland are helpful in exploring this fascinating period of cultural history in Scotland.
