Live from St Boswells! is a compilation of tracks recorded directly from our wee sound desk, tweaked a bit to iron out any creases and then published here on Bandcamp.
NOTE: We have not been able to afford our PRS renewal due to poor sales, so the album is presented as streaming only now, sorry.
The club was founded in April 2011 and has continued through thick and (very) thin, through ice and snow (sometimes in the hall) and with great joy, even ecstacy at times. The club is run entirely by volunteers, but we always pay the acts what they need, and anything left over goes to the Village Hall and to pay for the odd microphone and cable when we can afford it.
The tracks were selected to provide a fair representation of the kinds of music you can expect at St Boswells Live! and also to make a damn fine album. Some of the highlights didn't make it for various reasons, such as Boo Hewerdine's impromptu acoustic session (no recording at all), Where's George? performing the loudest set ever experienced in the village (went off the scale) and our opening evening with Kieran Halpin (no recording, too stressed!), but we think there's enough to keep any music-goer happy enough.
Please support local music bycoming along to our shows if you can - live music really is part of the community.
