Rutherglen Reformer - - Special Feature - Dou­glas Dickie

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.
