Radio Bute host fund-raising evening

Radio Bute will be hosting a fund-raising evening at Rothesay Bowling Club, featuring a variety of well-kent local faces.

Two young ladies who’ve taken centre-stage on many an occasion, and whose vocal abilities are evident through Rothesay Academy school shows and the national Open Mic competition are Beth Swan and Aimee Gimour.

Another former Academy pupil whose voice is turning heads is Rosanna O’Byrne.

Rosie’s debut album, Acoustically Me, in 2009, made her first mark on the music scene

The internet has played a big part in Rosie’s recent success. Since playing the Shetland Folk Festival, rather than selling old fashioned CDs, she has seen an increase in her online sales. She has her own Youtube channel where she uploads music videos, and has a Facebook page in which she openly invites fans to contact and interact with her.

Local band RISE will bring their own unique style to the evening, and as anyone who’s been to one of their gigs will attest, it’ll be a fantastic night’s entertainment.

Douglas ‘Big Dougie’ Lyle will be hosting the evening, and tickets, costing £10, are available from the Radio Bute Studio or from Cannon House.
