MUSIC fans are being urged to snap up tickets for the latest in a series of gigs in West Barns.

The village hall has already played host to Bancroft and Lyne, and then Roseanne Reid, as part of the Scotland on Tour series.

The gig featuring Roseanne Reid, daughter of The Proclaimers’ Craig Reid, was a sell-out and fans have been urged to buy tickets ahead of Rowan Leslie performing this Saturday.

The fiddle player is joined by Barry Stalker and plays a mixture of Irish/Scottish traditional music and his own original compositions.

He will be performing with his band, which includes a guitar, accordion and bodhran, from 7.30pm.

Rowan said: “I’m really looking forward to playing in West Barns this summer.

“I’m excited to share my arrangement of traditional tunes from across Ireland, as well as my own back catalogue of self-penned material.

“It’s fantastic to get out to lesser-played venues and take my music to communities that aren’t usually part of my touring circuit.”

'Fulfilment of a vision'

Scotland on Tour supports the creation of hundreds of concerts and performances at arts centres, town halls and community venues across Scotland.

More than 120 artists are set to perform at more than 100 venues across the country as part of the initiative.

Alan Gray, booking co-ordinator at West Barns Village Hall, said: “I am really looking forward to this concert series this year.

“For several years, I have wanted to get something like this off the ground in the village, so when the Scotland on Tour organisers approached me about two years ago, I jumped at the chance.

“This series will be the fulfilment of a vision for the village hall to be holding real, live music and I can’t wait.”
