ALAN REID and ROB van SANTE in concert
ALAN REID and ROB van SANTE, after an invigorating summer of solo projects and recording a new CD, are now hitting the road with a series of concerts in the U.K., Germany and France.

Alan and Rob present a lively show featuring Alan’s com-positions and traditional material, rooted largely in the mu-sic of the Scottish landscape, its cities, countryside and its coastline. From achingly beautiful ballads (like The Riccarton Tollman’s Daughter and The Pleasure will be Mine) to an entire musical cycle centered on the life and times of Scottish native John Paul Jones, Alan has long fostered a reputation for his songs (forged in his Battlefield Band years) which have been lauded for their strong melodies and historical content.

Ably complemented by Rob’s voice and supported by his tasteful accompaniments the duo offer a heady blend of seamless harmonies underpinned by sensitive arrangements on piano, guitars and accordion and topped by an engaging delivery peppered with dry humour and pithy anecdotes.


Sunday 7th December. 4pm-6pm with interval. Tickets £8.00 Join us for an entertainment of traditional storytelling and song at the Gordon Arms - the place the friends, Sir Walter and James Hogg last met!

In this 200th year since ‘Waverley’ first took the world by storm, hear stories and ballads which inspired Scott, ‘The Wizard of The North’, as told by local storyteller, Mary Kenny.
Join us also for a showcase of traditional, festive and local songs, including a selection from Hogg, sung by ‘The Fisher Lassies’, Borders- based a cappella group-still blushing from their sell-out performance at the Edinburgh Fringe!
