Walkerburn set to bring in New Year with the Boogie Band

AFTER five years bringing in the New Year at the Wynd Theatre in Melrose, the Border Boogie Band will usher in 2011 with a special gig at Walkerburn Rugby Club.

“We’d been asked to play in the village at Hogmanay for several years and that chance came up when The Wynd announced it was closing over the festive period,” explained bass player Gavin Dickie.

He will be joined for the event, which runs from 9pm till 1am, by guitarists Frank Usher and Davie Coyle, percussionist Dave Haswell and vocalist Andy Keddie.
