PEOPLE in Sauchie enjoyed some free entertainment at the weekend thanks to a community group's singers and musicians.

Sauchie Community Group, its Scatoosh folk singing group as well as musicians and singers put on a performance on Saturday, August 6, for residents to enjoy.

With unfavourable weather, the gig which was planned the be held in the community garden moved inside Sauchie Community Resource Centre but it did not dampen spirits with those heading along enjoying live music and a bit of dancing.

Guitarist and singers Sheila McRobert, Andrew Fowler and soloist Lynette Murray entertained the crowd along with the Scatoosh Singers with the gig lasting around three hours.

There were songs from the 50s and the present day along with some Scottish country and more.

Despite the weather woes, the Gig in the Centre event was a real success according to group president Kate Turner with residents asking for more in the future.

Kate said: “It was really successful and the people that were there actually asked us if we could do it every week because it got the out the house and it was just an afternoon of singing and fun and socialising.”

While the event is unlikely to go ahead every week Kate and the team are exploring what the possibilities are for a once every couple of months gig, thanks to a rich variety of performers available in the area.

“It's something we've looked at doing for a while but we weren't sure how it would go and if was something people were interested in, but the feedback has been great,” she added.

Scatoosh, separate from the group's established choir, practice every Tuesday, having started as a folk group with a few people coming together to sing.

It has grown from strength to strength to one of the busiest groups at Sauchie.

People can join Scatoosh for free every Tuesday between 7pm and 8.30pm.
