Known as The Front Room, the events have been organised with Lamp House Music. The first evening was a sell-out and it is expected the second with Paul Gilbody will be just as popular.

Paul Gilbody is a Belfast-born, Edinburgh-based singer-songwriter who has worked with the likes of KT Tunstall, Tom Jones and Horse and is now concentrating on his own career. He has an abundance of skills including double bass, guitar, beatboxing and pedal-looping.

The Front Room provides an opportunity to catch this highly regarded, multi-talented musician perform his catchy, melodic and chilled-out tunes starting at 7pm on the 26th. The event takes place in the centre’s Star Room, made to resemble a cosy front room with clever use of cardboard artwork created by artists Vic Macrae and Neil Ogg.

Tickets are £8 from the John Gray Centre (01620 820680) or Lamp House Music (01620 825630) and on the door, subject to availability. The bar opens at 7pm, first band 7.30pm

The Front Room is a collaboration between East Lothian Council and Lamp House Music. Also involved are Jewel & Esk College, whose students will oversee the sound production at the event. ELJAM and the Haddington Music Initiative are supporting the gigs and selecting an East Lothian youth support act to perform a short set each evening.
