Beppe Gambetta in concert @ The ACE Centre
Dec 7 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

One of the USA’s best-known guitarists, Beppe Gambetta is a flatpicker and fingerstylist with the kind of speed and accuracy that wins those bluegrass competitions at State Fairs and impresses Nashville producers. We are privileged to have Beppe as our guest artist for the last concert gig of the year, a pretty late December 7th. And he’s a singer as well, so those who don’t like instrumental concerts need never fear! It’s a mixture…

See: http://www.beppegambetta.com

The evening will start with doors open at 7.30pm for our regular open mic, an hour of local support, before Beppe takes the stage. There will be a short break and raffle midway through his performance.

Admission is £7 for non-members (£5 plus £2 ACE cover charge), £5 for members or under-18s (£3 plus £2 ACE cover charge). You are permitted to bring your own beer or wine, but not soft drinks – these, along with snacks/food/coffee, can be purchased from the ACE café lounge which connects to the concert room.

After the gig, there will be our usual Cobbles Inn late night open session.

Dana and Susan Robinson @ Kelso Golf Club
Nov 29 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

American duo known internationally for their harmony and expert accompaniment, with original songs and a depth of tradition.

This is a long-awaited gig – Dana and Susan have performed at String Jam in Galashiels in the past, but it will be their first apperance in Kelso.

Dana and Susan Robinson are two guitar-playing, banjo-frailing, fiddle-sawing, and harmony-singing interpreters of the American experience. Their unique blend of contemporary songwriting and traditional Appalachian music bring to their performances a deep understanding of Americas musical heritage.

The genius of a Dana and Susan Robinson performance lies in their ability to capture the imagination of their audience, evoking a transformative experience that touches on the deepest humanity. They can make the audience howl with laughter or hush with poignant reflection as they take them on a journey across America and convey the mystery and wonder of the places they visit.
