Aberdeen Music Service launches second uplifting singalong video

Aberdeen City Council’s Music Service has today (Wednesday 1 July) launched its second musical singalong video aimed at lifting the spirits during the Covid-19 lockdown.

And fittingly, it’s the much-loved local classic The Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen which takes centre stage. Performed by the Music Service’s instructors, Mary Webb’s iconic song follows on from Anna Hamilton’s rendition of Let Me Call You Sweetheart which appeared on YouTube on 19 May.

As before, the new video sees the performers accompanied onscreen by the song’s lyrics so viewers can join in.

The new video can be viewed on Aberdeen City Council’s YouTube page at

Aberdeen Music Service’s next video will feature pupils playing Danny Boy from their homes.

Councillor John Wheeler, Aberdeen City Council’s Education Operational Delivery Convener, said: “The Music Service had a wonderful reception for their first video and I’m sure the choice of a song much loved by Aberdonians all over the world and the beautiful performance will prove to be at least, if not more popular. Well done again to everyone!”
