Peebles School of Music back in force
After a two-year hiatus, Nomad Beat Community Music School will perform its first student concert since 2019.
The only activity Burgh Hall has seen since the pandemic began has been people queuing for vaccinations.
But this Sunday, February 27, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., people will be lining up for something much nicer.
Although they weren’t able to put on a show, the students didn’t let the pandemic slow them down, with many continuing with their classes and preparing for the concert online.
In fact, the lockdown struck a chord with many people who decided to learn an instrument.
Outgoing manager Ruth Kirby took care of the organization of the event.
“It’s fantastic to finally be able to give our students and bands the opportunity to perform again.
“Please come support your local music school and hear our talented musicians.
“It’ll give you a taste of what’s on offer here, and I don’t know of anything better than a bit of live music to lift your spirits.”
The concert will feature a wide variety of acts catering to all musical tastes, including rock, classical, folk and blues, as well as a raffle and refreshments.
Tickets cost £7 (under 16s free) and are available from Nomad Beat, Cavalry Park and at the door.
Nomad Beat was the vision of the late Alison Cameron and opened in 2010. The school is a registered charity with the aim of promoting affordable music education in a safe, friendly and relaxed environment.
