Following their success at the Bell Rock Tavern in Tayport last month, folk band Balvaig are returning to Fife.

They are set to appear on June 21 at Cupar Corn Exchange as part of the Hear the Nation community arts and music festival.

The band will join other acts for an evening performance to top off a day of art, dance and family events.

The group was formed in October 2011 by Kenny Higgins and Cliff Uney after they discovered they both had a mutual interest in live music.

Tommy Anderson joined in with his guitar then Stevie Black came along with his accordion and ceilidh and dance music skills.

Mikey Higgins was next with his guitar, unique voice and song writing skills and Owen Uney with banjo and harmonica. Mike Keeney brought harmonica and bodhran, Jane Booth mellow harmonies, song-writing and guitar skills and Greg Watson now adds a new voice and guitar.

In full flight, Balvaig can number nine members and provide acoustic folk in a traditional, bothy, ceilidh / dance or modern style and this can vary to folk/rock / alternative folk and a little bit of the blues.
