Young Kintyre musicians supported a Glasgow rock band as Clachan Village Hall Development Fund stepped up its efforts to raise money for a new hall due to recent further deterioration of the hall.

Famous Last Words formed last year to play a few songs at the Clachan Harvest Supper and also performed at the hall’s Eddi Reader fundraising gig in November.

Following their success, teens Raphael, Eilidh, Leo and Amber, took to the stage ahead of new wave rockers The Ronains at a Tarbert Village Hall gig recently.

The youngsters, who are all Tarbert Academy pupils with links to Clachan, were delighted to support The Ronains and have been working hard to develop their sound.

Organiser Lesley Norris said: ‘It was a brilliant night of rock and roll and we are grateful to The Ronains for playing the show.

‘Later this month (Sunday March 24) Scotland’s five-star children’s theatre group, The McDougalls, will be in Tarbert with its new safari show. The McDougalls were terrific last year and tickets are already selling really well for this one.

‘We will round off our spring shows with a visit from Wrestling Experience Scotland on Saturday April 20. VIP tickets are almost sold out already – we have sold out the hall every year for the visit of the biggest, baddest and funniest wrestlers in the UK.

‘Many thanks to West Kintyre Wind Farm Trust for its continued support and to everyone who comes to our shows. It is appreciated.’

Tickets for all the shows are available from Clachan Filling Station, Kintyre Electrical in Tarbert and Icon Hairdressing in Lochgilphead.
