A NON-STOP day of musical talent will takeover West Linton this weekend in aid of cancer care.

After completing a half-marathon in support of Maggie's Centres cancer care, Scottish folk legend Ian McCalman, alongside his friend, West Linton musician Charlie Milne, decided to put on a marathon of their own – Music For Maggie's.

The event will be formed of a more than 15-hour-long non-stop event beginning in the Village Centre and will end at the bowling club.

Ian said: “We are offering over sixteen hours of music with the Village Centre sets changing every half hour or so and there really is something for everyone.

“We have folk, blues, jazz, country, standards, Shetland fiddle, ukulele, pipe music, baroque, and rock and you can either pop in or settle down with a tea, coffee or some great home baking.”

Every half hour or so the entertainment – which includes folk, blues, jazz, pop, rock, country, fiddle, dance, pipes and even baroque – will change.

Performances at the Village Centre will feature singer/songwriter Ian Bruce, poet and actress Gerda Stevenson, guitarist Tom Clelland, Carlops Jazz Band and a theatre performance by local schoolchildren.

The event at the Village Centre is free to enjoy, but donations are welcomed.

The day will continue at the bowling club with Lazy Horse and Ragged Glory.

Entry to the bowling club will be £5.

There will also be a grand raffle in the evening with prizes donated by local businesses and clubs. Tickets are available to purchase from The Knot.

All proceeds from Music For Maggie's will go to the charity.

Charlie said: “It will be a great event and Music for Maggie’s will rock late into the night at the Bowling Club with great artists including Lazy Horse, with tickets on sale at the door for only £5.”

Maggie's Centres offer free support for anyone living with cancer and their families.

The centres work alongside NHS services and also offer online support.
