Bobby’s memorial gig is a sell out

THE Brig Inn in Lockerbie is getting ready to rock this weekend in memory of Bobby Mitchell.

Bobby was a regular at the Lockerbie pub and was well-known in the Dumfries and Galloway music scene, before he passed away suddenly last year.

Now Brig Inn landlords Paul and Caroline Bell have organised an evening of music in Bobby’s memory, as Caroline explained: “Bobby was a great guy, so we thought we’d organise this evening of music in his memory because he loved to play and listen to music.

“His family have been very supportive of it and they were the ones who encouraged us to contact Bobby’s mates, who are also in bands, who are going to be performing throughout the day and all money raised from the event will go towards Help Musicians Scotland.”

Taking to the stage in Bobby’s memory for the sold out music evening will be Mark it Zero, The Dogz, Big Time Louie, Code Red, The Drystane Dykers, Bare Bonez and Bad Reputation.

Furthermore, Caroline’s 13-year-old son Aiden will also be performing on the day and will be playing Bobby’s guitar which was gifted to him after Bobby’s passing. Caroline continued: “Bobby always encouraged Aiden to keep playing guitar and it’s going to be really special for him to play it in front of an audience. He’s a bit nervous because it is Bobby’s guitar but I know he’ll be great.

“About 350 people have bought wristbands for the event so that’s us at capacity, but I want to say thank you to everyone who has supported this event from the start. Now we just hope that the weather will hold up for us and that everyone will have a good time.”
