Feel free to bring an amplifier if you need one, but the room is small enough to be acoustic. If you feel an urge, and there is no one else doing it, play your instrument, sing your song, tell your story or whatever you want to do. We encourage people to join in, but if you want to do it alone then just ask. In the meantime, get drinks from the Cricket Club bar, listen to other people, and enjoy the soup and bread we’ve laid on (that’s where the “bread” bit comes from). That’s it. Donations to pay for the food, and keep St Boswells Live! running are welcome, but there’s no obligation. 27 OCTOBER TWEED SESSIONS: A song for the source of the Tweed. The 4th in a series of traditional music sessions along the River Tweed, celebrating the music and song of the Tweed catchment area.

Aged 12, she performed Bruch's Scottish Fantasy at St James' Palace in London for Yehudi Menuhin's 60th birthday celebration. Between 1990 and 1995 Andrea studied in Moscow at the Russian Gnesins Academy of Music, gaining her Masters Degree and Diploma in Solo Performance. Andrea currently teaches violin at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Djordje Gajic began his musical studies aged 6 in Serbia, graduating from the Russian Academy of Music in 1993. Since then he has won many international competitions and

performed with several international orchestras. These are two expetional musicians and there is no doubt a violin and accordion will generate a fair selection of unusual musical blends.
