Then a troupe of multicultural dancers provided a diverse range of dances including Persian, Flamenco and Samba. Covers band Big Duffy and the Goods were next performing hits by The Doobie Brothers, The Rolling Stones and The Beetles, among others. The Partick Monkeys finished off the day with some rollicking SKA music.
