After the resounding success of last year’s festival we are pleased to announce that the first weekend in August sees our second annual “Heart of Hawick Music Festival”. The 3rd, 4th and 5th August will see a veritable cornucopia of outstanding music; from the mainstay of the Tower Mill Cafe Bar throughout the weekend, to troubadour stages at Dalton’s Bar and 13 Brew; the return of our very popular Cooper’s Bar Open Mic; Sunday afternoon in Wilton Lodge Park, and so much more.
This year we are also extremely pleased to be in collaboration with the, ever popular, Mayfield Bar’s “Rock on the Roof” to bring you an even bigger and better festival.
Our three signature events are:
Friday Night’s All-Star Guitar Night featuring Jenny Biddle, John Goldie, Steve Morrison, Tom Paige and Paul Rose which is in the Tower Mill and is, amazingly, free.
Saturday Night sees the return of singer/songwriting sensation Dean Friedman from the USA who last year wowed our sold-out auditorium crowd. Tickets are priced at £20 and are available from Heart of Hawick Box Office (01450 360688). Dean will be supported by our very own Australian chanteuse Jenny Biddle.
Sunday Night’s End of Festival Concert gives us an incredible double bill of, the one and only, Eric Faulkner with special guest, the internationally acclaimed, Rory McLeod. Tickets are priced at £15 and are available from Heart of Hawick Box Office (01450 360688).
There are many more names appearing throughout the weekend with not enough space here to mention. Check local press for more details and look out for our festival brochure… Enjoy!
