The Tannahill Weavers are coming to the Heron Theatre in Milnthorpe, on Sunday, February 22, starting at 7.30pm.

One of Scotland's premier traditional bands, their diverse repertoire includes instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads and lullabies.

The band began to attract attention when founding members Roy Gullane and Phil Smillie added the full-sized highland bagpipes onstage, the first professional Scottish folk group to successfully do so. The combination of the powerful pipe solos, Roy's driving guitar and lead vocals, and Phil's flute playing breathed new life into Scotland's vast repertoire of traditional melodies and songs.

The band Skeltr are returning to Lancaster Jazz Festival for a one off gig live at Kanteena in Brewery Lane on Friday, March 6.

The unstoppable Manchester based electro-funk duo will perform their much anticipated new material for Lancaster audiences for the first time since their sensational 2018 headline performance.

Support on the night will come in the shape of Guerilla Biscuits, from Lancaster’s Hymns For Robots collective. Audiences can enjoy glitchy beats and sneaky tunes embedded in some sweet, dirty grooves and mixed and mashed in real time for a dirty electronic groove machine.

Tickets for the show are on sale now at and are priced at £5 in advance or £7 on the door. Doors open at 7.30pm.
