It’s a case of following the amber road to Colinsburgh this month as a former resident and his band take to the stage to raise funds for the town hall.

David Lindsay, who lived in the village for several years before moving to Largoward, and the rest of his Amber Road bandmembers, will be providing a night of entertainment in a bid to raise cash for the community-owned hall.

The band has performed all over the country since forming last year, and just recently opened the main stage at the Tyree Music Festival.

Moira Laurie, who is a member of the committee which is trying to raise funds for the hall, wants to encourage people to get involved.

“We’ve been trying to do the hall up over the years, and we’ve just been able to install a new kitchen. But we have lots more plans for the hall in the pipeline,” she said.

“We don’t have a figure that we’d like to raise – just as much as we can.”

Music kicks off at 7.30 p.m. with acoustic duo Natrual Curve on August 31 and it is a bring your own bottle event.

Tickets for the gig are priced at £10 and can be purchased from The Corner Shop and the petrol station, as well as from committee members.
