Troubadour and folk ambassador Pete Coe makes the journey to Melrose to perform for the Rolling Hills Club tomorrow night.

His career now spans well over 40 years, but the Cheshire-born artist still retains a strong presence in the British folk scene.

He has been involved with numerous bands and performed as a solo artist, as well as being a record label boss, broadcaster, teacher and even step dancer.

His lengthy time on the road has not diluted his appetite for folk music, with his current mini-tour of Scotland including a trip to the Mitchell Library in Glasgow to study some folk manuscripts.

Ron Anderson of Rolling Hills said: “He has become a friend to the folk club and has a good relationship with the Fisher Lassies, who he hopes will accompany him in a couple of songs from his repertoire.”

Doors open at 8pm for an 8.30pm start in the Scott Room of the George and Abbotsford Hotel.

Tickets on the night cost £6 or £5 for concessions, while students and under-18s are free.
