Kelso North and Ednam Parish Church are delighted to announce an evening of traditional music on December 9.

Carly Blain (fiddle) and Graeme Armstrong (guitar and song), both from the Scottish Borders, mix fast and energetic tunes with traditional and contemporary Scottish songs. Together with guests, this energetic pair will give audiences a night to remember and to make the soul sing.

Having grown up around the traditions of the Borders their set features much of the music they heard and played growing up.

Both graduates of the Folk and Traditional Music Degree from Newcastle University, and having spent years touring in respective bands around the world (Monster Ceilidh Band, The Rachel Hamer Band, Reel time, Ideoms Theatre), they are excited to be back playing together.

Carly and Graeme will be joined by the Small Hall Band, a dynamic, enthusiastic traditional concert/ceilidh band based in the Scottish Borders, and Mini Highline and Highline.

Their powerful and exciting set, mixing traditional and original tunes and songs, provides a captivating performance.

Concert is in aid of Kirk funds. Tickets are available on the door or from Hector Innes, Photographer, £5/£2.
