Comedy Night with John Gavin, Junior Simpson & Raymond Mearns
 


Join us this year for a fantastic triple bill of top stand up comedians. Your host for the evening, John Gavin started his comedy career when his wife entered him for a stand up competition without his knowledge. A month later he found himself in the final of 'So You Think You're Funny'. John then went on to win Scottish Comedian of the Year. Opening comedian Raymond Mearns is described as 'A genuine improvisational genius'. Whether engaged in hilarious audience interaction or simply sending down more gags a minute than a Glasow circuit judge, Raymond's shows are unmissable. Our headline comedian Junior Simpson is a comedy favourite. A true observational comic Simpson finds his humour in the everyday and humdrum with anecdotes of his world travels as a comedian adding a personal originality to his set.
A show not to be missed! Suitable for age 16 and over.

Tickets are £12 and are available from Biggar Little Festival Box Office
or on-line at www.biggar-little-festival.com

The David Latto Band
 


I was born between two bridges” sings David Latto in honey-soaked tones on ‘Rollin’ On’. Those bridges aren’t in Madison County nor are they spanning rivers outside Nashville but no matter. Wherever they are it’s the quality of his achingly beautiful songwriting that soothes and knows no borders.
He’s won over fans and festival goers the hard way: one by one, gaining a devoted following.  Touring Europe with North Carolina legend Phil Lee led to a mutual admiration and now The David Latto Band play live in Biggar.
Alt-country? Americana?  Whatever. It’s just beautiful songs about love, loss and drinking.

Tickets are available at the Biggar Little Festival Box Office or online at www.biggar-little-festival.com
