An Edinburgh band with strong links to the Borders has chosen Jedburgh’s Kaleidoscope Music Club to showcase tracks from their new album.

The Last September, pictured right, make their way to Jedburgh on Friday, July 1 and will be playing tracks from As The Crow Flies, with support from a handful of other local musicians.

Three of the band originally come from the Borders, including lead singer and the bands main songwriter Peter Deane from Denholm.

“I’ve known Peter from the days when we DJ’d on Radio Borders together”, said event co-ordinator Jason Moyes,

“I was a fan of the band Suburbia he played in back in the 90’s, so it’s really nice to be able to have him at Kaleidoscope.”

As The Crow Flies follows the band’s well-received debut Vagrant Song featuring single Streetlite which earned the band plays on BBC Radio 2 among other stations.

First single Precious Time is available as a free download during June from the band’s own site

Other acts on the night include Mike Pennington, a fine singer songwriter from St Boswells, and Bob Lawson, originally from Durham but now based in the Borders who has been described as an incurable romantic inspired by the lowland Scottish hillsides.

Jason adds: “I think we’ve got another really nice line-up of good local talent for the night, all the acts are playing acoustic and stripped back, and the room we have at The Pheasant is just the right size for a nice intimate evening of good local music.”

The evening starts at 7.30pm and is £3 admission.
