The man from Georgia still on my mind after a virtuoso performance last night!
Another fabulous night of musical entertainment at St Boswells Live last night. What better way to start than the dynamic duo Bon Accord! Stephen (viola) and Andrew (guitar) delighted the good-sized audience with magical renditions of tunes ranging from English folk to Irish jigs! Then two great sets from the master guitarist Brooks Williams. Not only was his guitar playing fantastic, his voice was a joy to listen to – whether singing or telling his wistful stories of home and life on the road. He also played tribute to his friend and musical collaborator Rab Noakes who sadly passed away last year.
NEXT UP AT SBL – Tickets still available NOW!
Not long until our next event on 11 February with Brooks Williams ! Just time to get tickets!
Unfortunately Devin Casson has had to postpone her visit to SBL. However, we have an excellent replacement support act in Bon Accord. BonAccord is a virtuoso duo based in the Scottish Borders performing lively, inventive acoustic music on viola and guitar. Stephen Tees and Andrew Smith play a potpourri of gypsy swing, ragtime, jazz standards of the 1930s and 40s, Latin dance rhythms, blues, transcriptions from the classical repertoire, and Celtic traditional with attitude. Their sound sparkles and creates a convivial ambience at weddings, fund raisers and social gatherings. Upbeat music to surprise and delight.
SBL Saturday 3rd – the joint was jumping!
JewelsKatz duo : Sandy Rosie and Jewels (with Ross Gardiner guesting on piano for a couple) opened up the evening with a mix of Songbook and pop classics, including “Songbird” as a tribute to the late Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac.
