Two Border blues talents, Mike Whellans and Tammy Miller, will perform at Longformacus Village Hall on Friday, February 28, at 7pm, and in Carlops Village Hall on Saturday, March 1, at 8pm.

The pair will be hosted by Watch Promotions, Longformacus’ new community group of performing arts enthusiasts funded by Lammermuir Community Fund, who want to bring live touring acts to the Lammermuir area.

The group’s Bob Wallum described Mike Whellans, from Lauder, as “an internationally known blues phenomenon with a long and successful career under his belt.”

And Wallum says the talented singer-songwriter Tammy Miller is a “rising Scottish star, just starting out on her career, with enormous potential in covering artists and composing her own songs”.

Tickets cost £8.

Acts booked by the group for later on in the year include Oscar Wilde’s black comedy, Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime, at Longformacus on March 29, and the Jenson Interceptors on May 16.
