Billy’s ex-band aid

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Fash­ion­istas are in­vited to a run­way show at a spe­cial event in Ruther­glen today.

Fea­tur­ing cloth­ing from high street store M&Co, the fash­ion show is be­ing hosted by the Go Ahead Club at Ruther­glen United Re­formed Church.

It will be held at the church hall at 2pm on Wed­nes­day, March 30.

Tick­ets cost £2.50 and can be bought at the door. A for­mer folk band part­ner to Billy Con­nolly is to head up a new arts and mu­sic event in Ruther­glen.

Brush­strokes & Bal­lads will see orig­i­nal art , paint­ings, sketches, po­ems, bal­lads, folk mu­sic and foot- tap­ping sin­ga­longs staged at The Friend­ship Cafe in Ruther­glen West and Ward­lawhill Church.

Headed up by mu­si­cian Watt Ni­coll, the event will bring to­gether a fu­sion of mu­sic and art cre­ated lo­cally.

Start­ing on Fri­day, April 1, guests - who are in­vited to take their own bot­tle - will be greeted with cheese and re­fresh­ments as they are given the op­por­tu­nity to look at the art work and bid for any works they want to take home. The art don­ning the walls will pro­vide the mu­si­cal in­spi­ra­tion for the night as Watt will weave the artist’s themes into the fab­ric of the songs and bal­lads per­formed.

Pro­ceeds will be do­nated to the Beatson Cancer Char­ity and will be bol­stered by the sale of art, as artists have agreed to do­nate a per­cent­age of the sale to the char­ity.
