In a real pre-Christmas treat, Bruce Molsky, America’s most revered ambassador of old time mountain music, performs at the Eastgate Theatre, Peebles on December 12.

A ‘street kid’ from the Bronx, Molsky bailed on college and city life for a cabin in Virginia as he sought to soak up authentic Appalachian mountain music at the feet of some of its legendary pioneers. He is regarded as a giant of his genre – one who, for decades, has been a globe trotting performer and recording artist, with seven solo albums and two Grammy nominations to his name. In his playing, Molsky digs deep to transport audiences to another time and place, with an authentic feel for the Southern Appalachian songbook. Concert starts at 7.30pm. Tickets £15 from www.eastgatearts.com.
