“If you haven’t made it to Mac art in Galashiels yet, then this Friday is the time to do it! The doors of this stunning converted church have been open each Wednesday night for the past 6 weeks to give a space for young people living across the Scottish Borders to come together and get creative.
James McIntosh of Sound Cycle, the Scottish Borders youth music forum, has hosted Niki , Rab and Jed from Tinderbox coming down to collaborate with the young people on writing arranging orchestrating and building up to performing some exciting new music ( as well as the challenge of seeing how many gig posters we can get up on route from Edinburgh to Galashiels!).
Niki has been heading up the project with her highlight being young composer and orchestrator Rab Taylor from Tinderbox collaborating with band 3 out of 4 to add the power of the Tinderbox Orchestra to a song they finished writing after week 1 of us all meeting. the track is called a night to remember and it definitely will be so hope to see you at Mac arts Friday 7th June from 7-10pm!”
