St Boswells Live! is bringing the USA over to Scotland on Saturday, April 18, giving it a bit of a shoogle and providing another unique show to its discerning audience.

Starring two distinctive headliners, plus a little local support, the line-up comprises the driving blues-rock talents of Red Dawg with the country-tinged musicality of Dan Walsh.

Touted as one of the finest banjo players in the UK, as well as being a superb singer, songwriter and guitarist, Walsh is described as “the real deal” (UNCUT).

He has two critically-acclaimed solo albums, with new album Incidents and Accidents only released last month.

As well as many tours of the UK, he also has recent successful trips to Canada, Germany, India, Norway and New Zealand to his credit.

Having made his name with duo Walsh and Pound and now a member of the award-winning Urban Folk Quartet, as well as guest appearances on stage and on record with the Levellers and Seth Lakeman, this unique and eclectic musician has stunned audiences across the world.

Last year he astounded a sell-out Smailholm audience, who are the reason he has been asked to play St Boswells Village Hall this time.

Red Dawg are a five-piece blues rock band from the Granite City of Aberdeen, their driving and exciting blend of originals and covers is something that, as with all good things in life, has to be experienced to appreciate it at its best.

Comprising a classic combination of vocals and sax, lead and rhythm guitar, bass and drums, Red Dawg have been performing for years, simply because they love doing it – and they are very, very good at what they do.

Promoter Keith Farnish said: “Red Dawg are back at St Boswells Live! for a second time – the first time they nearly blew the roof off. Let’s hope the refurbished hall does them justice.”

Doors at St Boswells Village Hall open at 7.30pm on Saturday, April 18, with the show starting at 8pm.

Show tickets are now available priced £10 (£5 for under-18s) at St Boswells Post Office or online (small charge applies) by going to www.stboswellslive.com.

They will also be available on the door at the full price of £12 (£6 under 18s). Under-12s get in free when accompanied by a paying adult – maximum two per adult.
