‘A Century of Song’ sung in Langholm

Have your say

For one night Carlisle Music Society is performing its production ‘A Century of Song’ over the border in Langholm on Saturday, February 11, following its successful first performance in Carlisle last November.

“The musical journey starts in the early 1900s in the years of the First World War, and ends in 2010,” a spokesperson explained. “The first act visits the flapper years of the 1920s, the 1930-40s when World War II was raging in Europe, the lively rock ‘n’ roll scene of the 1950s, and ends with songs from the 1960s – the start of the ‘pop decade’.

“The journey resumes in the second act with music from Swedish supergroup Abba in the 70s, and then moves on to musicals of the 80s before continuing to the 90s when the Spice Girls appear on the scene.

The show ends with hits of the past decade, including Tony Christie’s ‘Amarillo’ and Glee’s ‘Don’t Stop Believin’.”

The show starts at 7.30pm, and tickets are available from the Buccleuch Centre in Langholm (013873 81196).
