St Boswells Live! is very excited to be hosting the opening evening of St Boswells Village Week. This 9-day extravaganza of events and activities is known throughout the Borders and attracts people from even further to take part and enjoy the best of St Boswells at the start of the Summer. True to form, we have pulled out all the stops to bring you a truly engaging and entertaining show to kick the week off.
We are delighted that the multi-talented Tommy Ashby has come back up from London to his native Borders, to perform a solo set for us. Last heard, to huge acclaim at St Boswells in October last year, Tommy is about embark on a tour with Scottish chanteuse Nina Nesbitt, having been recognised for his amazing guitar playing and beautiful vocals. His solo work is second to none, whether with acoustic or electric guitar, or even mandolin, and we love hearing him play. There may even be a guest or two on the night.

Electric Penelope has just released an album of sumptuous songs which she will be showcasing, along with some belting covers on the night.
