Scocha Concert Friday 21st April 2017

 

Scocha, a Scottish folk n' roll band from Hawick in the Scottish Borders will be coming to play at Shrewsbury Golf Club on Friday 21st April from 7.30pm.

The name of the band Scocha – pronounced Scotia – is a clever play on words derived from the surnames of the two founding members Iain SCOtt and David CHApman better known to Scocha fans as Scottie & Chappy. They are joined on stage by Ross on drums, Neil on bass guitar and Dougie on lead guitar and harmonica.

Scocha play a unique brand of Scottish folk music ranging from soft ballads to rousing foot stomping refrains with a rocky edge. Their concerts are enjoyed by all ages and are laced with Scottish banter and infectious humour. Scocha are equally at home playing on a major stage or at a village hall. They are no strangers to Shropshire having given rousing performances to packed audiences at Picklescott Village Hall several times since they first played there in 2005.

There is a word in the Hawick dialect which roughly translated means fantastic. That word is “teesh”. You're certain to have a teesh evening at a Scocha concert. Don't miss it.

Tickets are £15 each & will be available at the Bar from 1st January.
Food will be available at the interval

See www.scocha.com for more information on the band.
