We celebrate the year of youth by having two marvelous acts from our high schools:
The festival concert this year is great value for money with three outstanding acts..
The headline act is THE OTHER ROAD folk band. Pete Abbot, Gregor Borland and Dave Walmisley draw upon their various backgrounds from Scotland, England and Africa to create a new and original sound. Talented multi-instrumentalists, they incorporate guitar, mandolin, bouzouki and harmonica with some very fine close harmony singing. They perform an eclectic mix of traditional, contemporary and original compositions ranging from soft ballads to foot-stomping fiddle tunes. With expert musicianship, infectious enthusiasm and a splash of good humour their concerts are highly memorable.
Orla Cuthbert, Abbi McCall, Anne Smith and Milie Bennet together make up the UKES OF HAZARD. We first heard them at a concert in the music hub suppoting Siobhan Miller and just had to have them for thIs concert.. They play ukelele and sing. Their confidence, enthusiasm and musicality are guaranteed to get the concert off to a good start.
SOPHIE MCDONALD is making quite a name for herself as a solo performer. She performed at the Arts Centre earlier this year to a sell-out audience who were entranced by both her voice and clarinet playing. This young lady has a quite a career in front of her.
Tickets are £12 (£10 for PCAA and PFC members) from the cafe at 4 West Street EH26 9DL or on line by clicking here
