C JUST over two years after his death, a full local tribute is to be paid to one of Clydesdale’s musical legends, John Martyn.

The cult folk/rock singer-songwriter lived for many years in a cottage near Carnwath and local fans, many who knew him personally, are staging a tribute night to the man and his music in Lanark’s Crown Tavern on Saturday, April 23, at 7pm.

Tickets are now available, priced £5, on 07818 282511.
