St Boswells Live! is putting on a ceilidh for the first time in a bid to benefit a local fundraising group.

The Wild Geese Ceilidh Band will perform, having played since 1996, including public ceilidhs at the Ghillie Dhu and Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh.

Support will be provided by two talented local acts.

Opening the evening will be Highline, a group of young musicians, tutored by Borders fiddle maestro Carly Blain, who perform regularly across southern Scotland and Northumberland.

And at the interval, Jedburgh flute and whistler player Ayliffe Rose, who Keith Farnish of St Boswells Live! describes as a “true natural musician”, will play.

The show takes place on Saturday, July 27, with doors opening at 7.30pm.

Mr Farnish added: “All profits raised on the night, including raffle money, will be going to Lucie’s Fund, helping a sick local child and her family during a very difficult time.

“We are proud to be supporting this important cause.”

Tickets are available from St Boswells Post Office priced £10, £5 (under-16) and £25 (family of up to five).

Discounted briefs can be bought from the group’s website –
