A lively night is in store for Friday, August 3, at Twynholm Village Hall when local indie-folk-pop band, the Razorbills, will perform a full set of original material.

Delivered with customary verve, charm and good humour, the set will include tracks from the band’s recently released album To Hell With Youth and Beauty.

Catchy melodies combine with skilful playing and wry lyrics, inspired by personal experience as well as social and environmental issues. The Razorbills will also inspire you to dance, with rhythms from the folk, rock and even reggae genres.

Alan McClure of the band says: “The Razorbills are delighted to have received such great support locally and we’re enjoying a busy season of gigs and festivals. Village hall venues like Twynholm have a good atmosphere and it’s sure to be a great night. We’re looking forward to seeing old friends and new faces in the hall; it sounds like it will be a really sociable evening.”

As well as the main act, the evening will warm up with an open mike session so remember to bring along your tin whistle, didgeridoo or whatever takes your fancy. Later on, well-known local media personality, Bruce McKenzie, will be giving classic and contemporary dance tracks a whirl to get everyone on the floor.

The event follows on the success of similar events held at Dundrennan earlier in the year and is being run as a not-for-profit community event by local group: Shindig. The aim is for informal live music events that showcase local talent as well as generally having a good time.

Tickets for the Twynholm Shindig are on sale now from Thompson’s Newsagents in Kirkcudbright at £6. Be quick – numbers are limited! For more info call 07789197484.
