Local comedian Eric Davidson is coming home to Newtongrange to play a special Rabbie Burns gig at the National Mining Museum Scotland.

Now a resident of Pathhead, Eric is looking forward to his gig on January 29.

He said: “It will be more of a Scots night than a Burns night. It wont be too heavy, good to keep it a laugh.

“It will be different from my normal show, which I like about Burns events, it’s coming from different angles. There is so much spoken about Burns you can take so many different angles on it.

“It’s the first time I have done this, I think it will be a good night. And I always enjoy going back to Nitten, going back to my home village.”

‘Eric Davidson: Comedy with a Burns Twist’, at the National Mining Museum Scotland, January 29, 7pm. £10. Call 0131 663 7519.
