So prolific was Frank Zappa that it is nearly impossible to present a representative sample of his work in just one concert. Nevertheless, Pygmy Twylyte present you with an unmissable evening of Zappa 'classics', if indeed such things exist. Zappa's 70's and 80's work is the main showcase, with occasional forays into 60's material. Expect “well known” tunes such as "Cosmik Debris", "Stinkfoot" and “Outside Now”, interspersed with instrumentals like "Black Napkins" and “Zoot Allures”. This seven-strong band will surely bring something to suit everyone’s tastes (and maybe even a little of Zappa's trademark wit on the side...) ARF!Suitable for age 14 plus ..

Moishe’s Bagel began in 2003, the lucky accident of an Edinburgh-based Chilean tango singer and four like-minded musicians. A shared love of klezmer, jazz and latin music soon saw them onstage at Henry’s Cellar Bar with a few tunes and a lot of enthusiasm. Since then, the band has regularly toured the UK, Ireland, and the Czech Republic, notching up sellout gigs at the Jazz Cafe, Sage Gateshead, St George’s Bristol, Edinburgh Queens Hall and many many more. We’re delighted to welcome these virtuoso musicians to Biggar..

Okay, so what is "Scotland the Uke" exactly? The challenge is, a new Dukes of Uke show, played exclusively on ukule-les, drums and bass, entirely made up of songs written, or made famous, by Scottish people. Don’t think Andy Stewart and the White Heather Club, possibly more like The Pro-claimers meet Still Game with the added challenge of rein-terpreting the songs for the ukulele! That’s the sort of class that the Dukes bring to ukulele playing with their crazy vide-os, all designed to make your evening’s entertainment UN-FORGETTABLE!....Previous Dukes' shows have featured Eurovision hits through the years, movie themes, World War 2 favourites, and songs about space, so surely nothing can go wrong in a show which features home g..
