DECEMBER is going to be a busy month at the Rolling Hills Folk Club.

To kick off the celebrations at the Smith Memorial Hall in Darnick, the brilliant a cappella group, the Fisher Lasses, will take to the stage on Friday (December 6).

And in three weeks' time legendary folk singer Archie Fisher will perform.

This week's concert sees the Fisher Lasses make a welcome return to the Darnick folk club.

Since their formation in 2007, as a key part of Lament for the Little Boats about the Eyemouth Fishing Disaster, the singing group has charmed audiences all over the Borders, the north of England and the Edinburgh Fringe.

The five Borders-based singers, hailing from Yarrow, Innerleithen and Peebles, marry together wonderful harmonies with occasional fiddle accompaniment.

Elsa Lemaitre has been their co-ordinator from the outset, and is well known in her own right across the Scottish folk scene as a tradition-bearer for songs from Scotland and beyond.

Another well-known performer will be heading to Darnick on Friday, December 27.

Archie Fisher has gained world-wide recognition following a hugely successful career that has straddled several decades.

Born in Glasgow into a family of diverse musical tastes, he has developed his own brilliant style with his wonderful mellow voice and skilled musicianship.

Tickets for this Friday's Fisher Lasses concert, priced at only £7 and £6 concessions with under 18s and Young Scot card-holders free, will be available on the door.

Tickets for the Archie fisher concert, priced at £10, can be purchased in advance from 07986 644661.

A bring your own bottle policy is in place for both evenings, with the doors opening at 7.30pm for an 8pm start.
