Kelso Folk Club’s open mic sessions in the ACE Centre will continue over the summer months.
It was feared the group would have to close its doors for six weeks due to rising costs, but instead the club has announced that room hire charges will be covered.
It means the open mic night will carry on every Friday from 7.30pm with a £1 admission charge as normal.
There is a special provision for younger performers from 8pm and 8.30pm by request.
“New faces, families, and children are all welcome,” added the club’s David Kilpatrick .
