Girls are ready to rock out
Battle of the bands
Five pupils from Cathkin High are hoping to strike all the right notes when they take part in a battle of the bands competition.
Jelly Bean Scramble are made of fourth and fifth year pupils at the Cambuslang school.
They are fronted by Kirstin Shaw, who sings lead vocals.
The backline consists of drummer Gemma Harbinson, bass player Heather Jackson, guitarist Emma Shaw and Sophie McLelland, who plays the ukulele and provides backing vocals.
They have entered the contest which will be held at Hamilton Town House tomorrow, Thursday, February 15.
They will compete against other school bands from South Lanarkshire with the aim of being named the best in the region.
The girls have picked We Don’t Believe What’s on TV by American two-piece 21 Pilots.
On the day of the competition, the girls will be sound checking at 11am followed by an interview by a member of the band Be Charlotte.
The day will be filled with meetings, rehearsals and mingling with fellow musicians from across South Lanarkshire. The event itself kicks off at 7pm. Cathkin High staff and pupils are hoping as many people as possible head along to support the girls.
A spokeswoman said: “The night promises to be filled with rock, rage and riveting music.
“Hopefully, for Jelly Bean Scramble the hard work and preparation put into weeks of planning for this big event pays off and they ‘scramble’ to the winner’s podium.”
Tickets can be bought from https://sllcboxoffice.co.uk/ or on the night.
