A BUSY few weeks in the Heart of Hawick is headlined by an appearance by City Lights star Dave Anderson.

Better known for his acting roles, such as Adam McClelland in City Lights or Gregory’s dad in Gregory’s Girl, Dave started his career as a songwriter.

His stage career began in 1973 when he joined a theatre company after playing and writing with rock and roll bands.

He went on to become a well known face to Scottish TV viewers and theatre fans in particular, and was the musical director of Tony Roper’s The Steamie.

His latest show is a blend of stand-up, cabaret and musical theatre.

A spokesperson for the show said: “The theme is his teenage years, which just happens to be the late 1950s when rock ’n’ roll was king.

“Expect hits and forgotten classics of the time, plus new songs of his own.”

Dave Anderson’s Shoo Be Doo is at the Heart of Hawick on Tuesday. Tickets are priced at £9 (£8) and are available from 01450 360688.
