New band make Connections

NEWLY formed fiddle band Border Connections takes to the Bowhill Theatre stage this month.

Roddy Matthews, Gary Forrest and Lynn Tocher will perform traditional music from across both sides of the English and Scottish Border – as well as across the Irish Sea.

A Bowhill Theatre spokesperson said: “It will be a concert full of bright and breezy melodies and haunting and passionate tunes.

“Well known individually from performances on Take the Floor and appearances at festivals across the country, the formation of this musical partnership will provide an interesting addition to the Borders music scene.”

The concert on Thursday, March 22 starts at 7.30pm. Tickets (£7.50) are available by phoning 01750 22204.
