SCOTTISH folk legends will be performing in Uplawmoor next month in aid of the InDependent Diabetes Trust.

The programme will consist of contemporary and traditional Scottish music hosted by folk legends Eddie McGuire on flute and Alastair Savage on fiddle.

Eddie is an internationally renowned composer and performer both in the orchestral world and as one of the leading players in the popular Whistlebinkies folk group.

Alastair is a member of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and has performed Scots fiddle music in Scotland and overseas including a series of concerts at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival. They will be joined by fellow BBC musician Iain Crawford on double bass and guitarist/pianist Euan Drysdale to explore music from the Scottish tradition as well as music written by both Alastair and Eddie; there will be guest appearances from other musicians. Alastair has recorded 3 albums with Iain Crawford and Euan Drysdale and next year celebrates the 10th anniversary of the group’s first recording made in 2004.

Doors open from 7pm on Friday, November 22 in Caldwell Parish Church, Neilston Road, Uplawmoor.

Tickets priced £5.00 are available from the Minister, Dr. David Donaldson or at the door.
