Mareel gig cancelled

A planned performance at Mareel by two members of Irish super group The Saw Doctors has been cancelled.

Vocalist Leo Moran and bass/saxophone player Anthony Thistlethwaite were scheduled to play an acoustic set to a Lerwick crowd tomorrow night.

However, they have called off the rest of their Scottish tour after Moran’s father was taken ill, forcing an unplanned return to Ireland.

The duo are planning to reschedule the performance for later in the year. Tickets bought for tomorrow will still be valid for the delayed performance.

Alternatively, refunds are available through the box offices at Mareel or Islesburgh.
