WEST LINTON was treated to a night of 60s and 70s classics last weekend, thanks to Lazy Horse.

The local band returned to the Bowling Club on Saturday (April 2) to perform a benefit concert to help people affected by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

Lazy Horse has previously played at the club and also at the Newlands Centre, but this marked the group’s return to live gigs following the coronavirus pandemic.

One audience member said: “Brilliant night.

“Amazingly talented band. So glad I didn’t miss it. And for such a worthy cause. Thank you Lazy Horse.”

Another added: “Fabulous music, a great night!

“Thank you lazy horse and the bowling club.”

Lazy Horse perform covers of classics by Bob Dylan, The Band, Neil Young, Richard Thompson, Gerry Rafferty, Thin Lizzy, Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac and Santana.

The night was well attended and the club was decorated with the Ukrainian and Scottish flags as well as custom-made bunting featuring imagery in support of Ukraine.

Proceeds from the night were donated to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal Fund.

In total, the benefit concert raised £370.48 for the appeal.

The West Linton community had already raised more than £1,000 for the DEC appeal through a coffee morning at the Village Centre and thanks to donations collected by Linton Hotspur FC during their match against North Berwick FC last month.
