ROLLING Hills Folk Club present their third festival this summer – with a couple of special guests expected to take part.
Rolling Hills organiser Ron Anderson said: “Beth Scrimshaw, who lives in London, is intending to be married on the Eildons on the Saturday, July 28.
“Her relations are mainly from the Inverness area and Melrose was chosen by Beth as a convenient half-way point for her wedding and for her guests. She is keen for her wedding party to come along to the Friday night ceilidh and a number of tickets have been sold already.”
The Clarty Cloot Ceilidh Band will host Friday’s opening to the festival, based in Melrose’s Corn Exchange.
Saturday’s evening concert sees acoustic guitar expert Phil Hare, Glaswegian pair Alison McMorland and Geordie McIntyre and Scots Trad Music Awards hall of fame members the Tannahill Weavers, who complete their Scottish tour in Melrose.
Scott Gardiner and Celtic Connections’ Danny Kyle Award finalists Barlauth entertain the Sunday afternoon concert audience, alongside young Ross and Cromarty group Fèis Rois Trad Trails and the Fisher Lassies. The Sunday show is free to under-18s.
Tickets can be bought from www.rollinghillsfolkclub.org.uk, Merlin Music in Melrose or phone 07986644661
