Two Milngavie artists have set up a new non-profit making venture to encourage performers to showcase their skills on the stage.

Organisers Debs Sanderson and Debra Torrance have decided to bring the intriguingly named Aye-Aye Lemur Club to Milngavie’s Corbie Ha’ for a small initial one off show that will showcasing contemporary Scottish performers, film makers, comedians and musicians this Saturday night, September 7 at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 but this is only to cover their costs.

Debs said: “We have nine artistes in the show and each ticket includes an pie and a pint. The idea behind the show was just to get somewhere where we could bring together artists, many of whom are just starting out.”

And she added: “It’s a kind of appreciation club and open artist night. We will be presenting some of Scotland’s finest performers of all varieties celebrating Scotland and its culture.”

Among the artist on the billing are film maker Ross Fraser McLean and Josie Rose, an amazing 18 year old singer songwriter and harpist.

The two Debras met when Debs, as she likes to be called to stop confusion, got talking by chance in Milngavie Precinct.

Debs said: “We just clicked and had so much in common. We decided to liven things up and, prove to ourselves that we could do something like this.”
