Donnie Munro desperately trying to get someone to cover his shift

Fears have been raised that ex-Runrig frontman Donnie Munro might not make his old band’s final hurrah at Stirling in August as he’s down to work KP duty that night in his son Calum’s Scorrybreac restaurant in Portree.

Donnie who left the band in 1997 to pursue a career in politics, has carved his own successful solo career, but wowed the crowd with an emotional three song reunion at the 40th Anniversary Party On The Moor. Hopes were high for another such occasion to a sell-out crowd.

However, with his offspring’s new business venture wowing the public in Portree with the finest haute cuisine, Donnie has been so busy scrubbing dishes and peeling buntàta in the kitchen that he has made a mix-up on the dates. A family insider said “Dad was so engrossed humming Chì mi ‘n Tir to himself with his sunglasses on whilst chopping parsnip, that he absentmindedly said that he could work any night in August. It wasn’t until a couple of days ago when we put up the rota that he realised the mistake. If he can get his shift covered he can go but its peak tourist season in Skye, so he knows it’s all hands on deck.”

Richard, the admin on the official Donnie Munro Info facebook page posted up a status saying “Donnie is wondering if anyone can do his shift on the Saturday of the Runrig gig, if not I’ve got a couple camping tickets available, face value o.n.o.”
