Play it again Tommy as musician records third CD

A popular Ellon musician has brought out a third CD of his favourite tunes.

Clarinet maestro Tommy Sutherland, 74, has released a 17-track compilation of easy listening and up-tempo music.

Tommy’s roots are in Shetland but he has lived in the North-east for more than 30 years.

Last year he recorded “At Last” and then “At Last...Take Two” which featured a compilation of his best-loved tracks.

His love of the clarinet has led to “At Last...Take Three”, which is now on sale.

Tommy said he went back into the studio following requests from lovers of his music.

The musician, who has strong musical connections with his native Lerwick, has been a prominent figure in the Aberdeenshire band scene for many years

He told the Times: “I had never ruled our doing a third CD and it was all down to requests.

“Shetland folk in particular were asking me when the third one would be coming out.

“I just love playing the clarinet and I’m no longer involved in the band work, so I now enjoy the clarinet as a hobby.”

Tommy recorded the CD at RSD Studio in Turriff and it is on sale for £10. Copies are available from JRD Equipment in Ellon.
