KIL­MALLIE not-for-profit com­mu­nity events group CREEL is hold­ing its first gig of 2017 on Satur­day Fe­bru­ary 25.

CREEL was set up by Kil­mallie res­i­dents keen to see more live acts play in the area and the group is es­pe­cially pleased to be wel­com­ing a Lochaber band.

FRAS, a five-piece band com­pris­ing pipes, flutes, whis­tles, gui­tar, banjo and ac­cor­dion, re­leased their de­but al­bum Dìle last year and have per­formed far and wide at fes­ti­vals, con­certs and ceilidhs.

CREEL found­ing mem­bers Susie Calderan and Mandy Ketchin said: ‘It will be great for Kil­mallie to have the op­por­tu­nity to en­joy FRAS’s high- en­ergy High­land mu­sic, full of strong melodies, taut rhythms and fan­tas­tic mu­si­cian­ship in Caol Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

' FRAS seemed to have played prac­ti­cally ev­ery­where ex­cept here. We’re look­ing for­ward to a re­ally fun night. To en­cour­age peo­ple to think of the en­vi­ron­ment, there’s £1 back off the ticket price on the door for any­one who ar­rives on foot or by bike. Pogo sticks, roller skates and horse­back also qual­ify.’
