X Factor finalists The MacDonald Brothers will be appearing at Peterhead’s Palace Hotel later this month to help raise funds for a local group.

The pavilion is home to various groups and is open on various days and evenings of the week to the young people, the local commnity and surrounding areas.

Tickets for the show, which starts at 7.30pm, are priced £12 and can be purchased by calling 07580 269276 or emailing

Craig and Brian have enjoyed great success since appearing on The X Factor.

After signing with Scottish-based music producer Stuart ‘Woody’ Wood, formerly of The Bay City Rollers, at the Music Kitchen, Brian and Craig have recorded four albums and have had several sell-out tours across the UK including supporting Westlife.

The brothers can now often be found playing on cruise ships from Spain to the USA. However they are no strangers to Peterhead and have visited on several occasions and no matter what the weather they love to come and visit the folk of the Blue Toon.

They can often be found saying its like being a home away from home when they visit the town and both lads cannot wait to return in August.

An organiser for the show told the Buchanie: “This will be a night not to be missed as it is guaranteed there will be something for everyone’s musical tastes.

“Brian and Craig are proving to be one of Scotland’s most versatile acts around.”

Organisers of the event celebrated the Queen’s Jubilee at Barclay Park which saw locals turn out in their hundreds to enjoy a fun-filled family day which included lots of attractions.
