A TEENAGE band has secured its first public gig. . . at North Berwick's Fringe by the Sea festival! 

Top names for the music world, comedians and literary circles have all graced the festival's Spiegeltents over the past week.

Now added to that roll of honour are indie-rockers Shoegazers - made up of four North Berwick High School 14-year-olds who practice in the school music department at lunch-times.

 Jason Lovell (electric guitar and vocals), Sam Cowan (electric guitar and backing vocals), Luke Smith (drums and backing vocals) and Fraser McCarter (bass guitar and backing vocals) have so far only performed at private parties.

So to have their first gig at Fringe by the Sea is quite an achievement - and a challenge!

A mixture of their favourite tracks will be played along with some original songs.

World-famous crime writer Ian Rankin follows the performance on Saturday so the band will play a punk track to honour his taste in music.

The boys' gig, at noon in the the Lighthouse Spiegeltent, is free but donations can be made to North Berwick's Beach Wheelchairs charity.
