SEE in the New Year with an eclectic blend of local musical talent at The Cove’s Hootenanny on Thursday, December 31.

Exceptional bluesman Ben Carr hosts and performs with his funky rockin’ band The Hot Rats alongside fellow stalwarts and prospects from the local circuit.

Driven by energetic big band drumming (Aly Day), they deliver fresh hard-hitting sounds with big grooves and infections walking double bass lines (Tom Carr) – punctuated by soulful vocals and electrifying guitar leads.

Get ready to rock ’n’ roll, this band never fail to get a crowd dancing.

A special set-menu will be on offer from 7pm, booking is advised while the bar and music is open to all revellers.

Celebrate the arrival of 2016 in true Hogmanay style in Hope Cove.

Admission is free.
