She had us singing along at a couple of choruses. That’s her behind the harp, and the others who stayed to be interviewed about why they come and/or live here. A few are natives, and the woman in pink, Jane, started coming for holiday at age of ten, has been here about 24 summers. Rhoda, in front of her, grew up here, and there were three in her school on Iona. She had to go to mainland, to Oban, for high school.
