Banding together as Bavarians visit Selkirk

SELKIRK is set to resonate to the sounds of modern Bavaria this weekend, thanks to a visit from a band from the royal burgh’s German twin town, Plattling.

Tonight, the Selkirk/Plattling Twinning Group will welcome the Friends, die gute Laune Band when it arrives for the start of its three-day visit.

The Friends group played at a Bavarian/Scottish concert during the Selkirk contingent’s visit to Plattling in May last year, and it was then the idea of a return trip to Selkirk by the band came about.

The group will be performing in Selkirk Rugby Club tomorrow night, along with local musical outfit, Gael Force.
