FOLK enthusiasts have been reminded that the Rolling Hills Festival returns next weekend.
Before then, this Saturday, a craft fair will be held in the Corn Exchange in Melrose to raise cash for the event, which this year is being run without grant aid.
The fair runs from 10am to 4pm and showcases Scottish crafts from the Borders, Lothians and Dumfries and Galloway.
There will also be copies of newly-produced CD Sounds of the Borders to purchase which will raise funds for the Borders Talking Newspaper, which celebrated 1,000 editions this year.
Information on the forthcoming three-day festival will also be available.
It kicks off on Friday, July 27, with a sold-out Corn Exchange hosting The Clarty Cloot Ceilidh Band.
The evening concert on Saturday, July 28, includes 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.rollinghillsfolkclub.org.uk, Merlin Music in Melrose or phone 07986644661.
