Belles ring out in Hawick

St Boswells Live! hosts Plug and Play this month, a show consisting entirely of talented musicians aged 17 and under.

The live music club will host eight spots of 15 minutes each which are open to groups and solo performers of all genres, with the emphasis on gaining experience of a live music environment and playing in front of an audience.

“We will try and make sure as many different parts of the central Borders as possible are represented, as well as a wide range of musical styles,” added Keith.
