Sauchie residents enjoy an evening of music at the community center

The PEOPLE of Sauchie enjoyed free weekend entertainment courtesy of singers and musicians from a community group.

Sauchie Community Group, his folk singing group Scatoosh, and musicians and singers put on a show on Saturday, August 6, for the enjoyment of residents.

With inclement weather, the concert that was to be held in the community garden moved inside the Sauchie Community Resource Center, but that didn’t dampen spirits with those heading for the live music and a little dance.

Guitarist and vocalist Sheila McRobert, Andrew Fowler and soloist Lynette Murray entertained the crowd with the Scatoosh Singers with a concert lasting approximately three hours.

There were songs from the 50s and today with Scottish country and more.

Despite the inclement weather, the Gig in the Center event was a huge success according to group president Kate Turner, with residents asking for more in the future.

Kate said: “It was really successful and the people who were there asked if we could do it every week because it was coming out of the house and it was just an afternoon of singing and having fun and of socialization.”

Although the event is unlikely to take place every week, Kate and the team are exploring the possibilities of a gig every two months, thanks to a wide variety of artists available in the area.

“It’s something we’ve been considering doing for some time, but we didn’t know how it would turn out and if it was something people were interested in, but the feedback has been great,” she said. added.

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

It grew stronger and stronger to become one of Sauchie’s most active bands.

People can join Scatoosh for free every Tuesday between 7-8:30 p.m.
