Auld Hat - New Heids 22 November 2017 7:30pm £12.00 / £10.00 concession Rutherglen Town Hall
Following the great success of last year, we are delighted to welcome back Auld Hat – New Heids to Rutherglen Town Hall.
Their success has been rewarded in the last year with a sell out concert at the prestigious Celtic Connections Festival in January. June 2017 saw the release of their first CD as a group; Auld Hat – New Heids Vol. One. Between them they have released more than 30 CDs and have supported acts on many more.
This show will take you back to the early days of folk music in Scotland when folk clubs were packed with people having fun and singing along to the songs they knew so well.
With clever wit and banter Fraser Bruce, Ian Bruce, Pete Clark and Gregor Lowrey will have you 'singing your hearts out'
The success of this show is backed up by their Festival and Theatre appearances this year ranging from Orkney in the North to Stranraer in the South.
Fraser Bruce's first experience of folk songs was as a pupil at Rutherglen Academy where Norman Buchan MP was a teacher at the school and ran a 'ballads club', a club “dedicated to folk music."
Available to book online or by calling Rutherglen Town Hall on 0141 613 5700.
Cost: £12.00 / £10.00 concession

Read The Past Imagine the Future 24 April - 3 December 2017
Read The Past Imagine the Future is something new at your local library.
In this Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture libraries are launching a new campaign to encourage more people to get reading.
The Read The Past Imagine the Future campaign supported by the Scottish Library and Information Council*, will be live in libraries in South Lanarkshire from 24 April to 3 December 2017.
Read the Past Imagine the Future aims to raise awareness among people of all ages to discover what their local library offers, including book lending, computers and IT facilities, e-books, newspapers and magazines, author events, children’s activities, reading groups, local and family history resources and employment support. It also aims to encourage reading throughout communities across Scotland and to widen knowledge of local and national history.
The seven month Scottish national reading promotion will include fiction, non-fiction and will celebrate Scotland’s rich heritage, history and culture of writing and reading. Stock will include local and national history and local authors as well as stock that focuses on our heritage and depicts images and ideas of the future.
Gerry Campbell, General Manager of South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture said:
“With this campaign, we want to inspire people to visit their local library and pick up a new book and enjoy reading for the pleasure it brings. It’s amazing how much books and reading can teach you and open up your imagination.
“Modern libraries offer something for people of all ages. We want to connect people to the possibilities and opportunities at their local library, through our books, our people and our technology. Your local library will be running a competition from the 24 April to 12 November 2017 with winners of the Book Tokens announced during Book Week Scotland."
The competition to win a £50.00 book token runs in libraries across Scotland. To enter - submit a book review at a local library or tweet using #ReadThePast17 and include @southlanarkshirelibraries in the tweet. A copy of the terms and conditions are available at your local library.
