Band to raise cash for Gullane playgroup


Roadrunner, one of Scotland’s most versatile and in-demand party bands, will perform at Gullane Village Hall on Saturday, June 14.

The concert will raise cash for Gullane Playgroup in East Lothian.

Drawing on its repertoire of classic rock, pop, soul, swing, indie and rock ‘n’ roll party hits, plus a high energy ceilidh set, the band fills the dance floor at many Scottish events.

Venues played have ranged from Edinburgh Castle and Gleneagles to the AECC.

Individually the band members have shared the bill with acts including Girls Aloud, Athlete, Coolio, S Club 7 and the Bluetones.

They have performed on BBC1, BBC2, ITV and Channel 4, as well as BBC Radio 1, Radio 2 and Radio 6 Music.

Roadrunner’s recent headline performances in Scotland include the Highland Bierfest, the Heart & Soul Ball, Rugby Den and repeat bookings for Edinburgh Ski Club’s annual ball and the Port Edgar Yacht Club awards dinner.

Roadrunner’s band leader James Ingham grew up in East Lothian and has recently moved to Gullane from Edinburgh.

Katy Hill on behalf of the playgroup said: “We are absolutely delighted that Roadrunner are playing a gig to raise funds for Gullane Playgroup.

“Roadrunner offered to play for free when James Ingham moved to Gullane and his children enrolled in the playgroup. He was really impressed by how excellent the playgroup was and wanted to help. We can’t thank him and his band enough for offering to do this for us.”

Tickets can be purchased in advance by e-mailing or telephoning Katy Hill on 07795341653. They will also be available at the door on the night.
