Congratulations to Callum Geddes, winner of Grampian’s Got Talent! After two months of tough competition, with 30 performers participating, the 17-year-old singer-songwriter from Aboyne will be our Local Headline Act.
On 24 March, Castlegate Brewdog was packed with more than 200 people to watch the top 10 acts from previous rounds of the competition. Grampian Pride Event Manager, Deejay Bullock, said “All 10 acts were amazing, the competition was tough and I couldn’t call who was going to win.”
Judges gave ratings and commentary, but ultimately it was up to the public to decide – and Callum won hearts with his original songs and beautiful voice.
He said: “I was actually quite surprised I won, being by myself, and being up against so many bands. It was amazing to play. I’m from a rural area, so I don’t get the opportunity to play with that many people very often. I’m quite nervous (to perform at Grampian Pride) but I’m really excited to show everyone my music. I want to bring in a few songs that everyone will know as well.”
Callum has played piano since he was 10, and has been writing his own songs for many years. He is planning to study music at university, starting in the autumn. He will perform on the main stage at this year’s Grampian Pride on 25 May, alongside international stars Rozalla, Booty Luv & Lynx – plus some familiar faces from Grampian’s Got Talent.
