A passionate advocate for Scottish culture, Robyn was a nominee for Scots Singer of the Year in 2014 and 2014 (Scots Trad Music Awards) and her debut album ‘Fickle Fortune’ has received outstanding reviews.

Singer Sheena Wellington said of Robyn: “Gifted with a beautiful voice, warm, rich, flexible and distinctive. Couple this with a true love and respect for her material and the ability to engage an audience anywhere.”

Robyn will be joined by one of Scotland’s finest folk musicians, Aaron Jones, on bouzouki, guitar and vocals. Aaron is a much sought-after accompanist and has recorded on over 70 albums. He also performs with Kate Rusby and is a member of the Old Blind Dogs. He recently recorded an album with Robyn and Scots singer Emily Smith, called Macmath: The Silent Page.

The music starts at 7.30pm. Tickets, costing £8, are available from Yetholm Village Shop or by calling Susan Stewart on 01573420231.
