Soloists show their talent

THE Silkstone Eisteddfod continued over the weekend with performers continuing a high standard of recitals.

Convenor Margaret Buchanan said the performance of 12-year-old Paris Morgan in the girl's solo and folk song categories was outstanding.

"She had a lovely voice and she won a couple of first places," she said.

Mrs Buchanan said so far the eisteddfod had lived up to the expectations of the convenors.

"It has been pretty good. There have been 15-year-old boys who have very good voices."

The eisteddfod, in its 86th year, has attracted performers from around the Ipswich area.

"We get entrants from Brisbane and some from the country areas, but the majority are from Ipswich."

Next week's events include the performance of the junior choir category, with 20 choirs taking part.

The Silkstone Eisteddfod continues at the Glebe Road Uniting Church until October 29.
