MUSICAL history will be made this week when La Caverna in Lossiemouth becomes Liverpool’s famous Cavern Club for the evening.

The stone-vaulted 17th century salt cellar will open its doors at 7.30pm on Thursday for an evening of open mic entertainment in which act will be asked to perform at least one tune from the Beatles.

The audience and performers will also be encouraged to dress in the style of the swinging Sixties

A number of local musicians have already booked their slots, including local duo Frankie Ralph and Lewis Anderson of The Roov, together with Stewart McLeod and Ross Campbell and Aaron Christie of The Mode.

Elgin musician Max McPherson will host the evening and, in a special opening performance, will play alongside his brother Leo, drummer with the energetic rock band Estrella.

The soulful singer/songwriter Chris Grant has promised an appearance as well as Danny Mortimer, Steve Cunningham, Scott Ramsay and fiddler Amber Thornley.

The venue’s owner David Guidi will present each act with a voucher for dining to be redeemed at the next Open Mic event.

He will also judge the best dressed sixties style outfit and present the winner with a prize.

Organiser Lesley Ann Parker said, "We can’t promise recording contracts like the Beatles won, but we hope to provide a great networking experience for everyone involved."

Anyone who would like to perform should contact 07887 846485 or lesley@leap-scotland.com

Entry is free and everyone is welcome to come and listen, although booking is recommended for dining.
