IDLEWILD frontman Roddy Woomble will headline tonight’s Carluke Jam Festival Live - along with a stellar supporting cast.

Roddy, who had top 20 hits with You Held the World in Your Arms and American English, is the main attraction of Jam Festival Live!

On Friday night Carluke pubs were busy with tons of local talent performing.

And today, Saturday, Carluke Lifestyles Centre takes centre stage in the daytime and evening, with jam pieces to suit everyone and keen jam makers can display their skills and hopefully win a prize in the Jampionship!

There will also be talks, videos, a workshop and demonstration on jam-making for all the family, face painting and craft events for the children.

Attention will then turn to the finale of the weekend, Jam Festival Live!

Hosted by celebrated Scottish DJ Jim Gellatly, Roddy will be ably supported by Biggar band The Dukes of Uke as well as Carbon Copy, who will wow the crowd with everything from Rihanna to Nirvana with legends like Al Green in between.

Local band Carbon Copy complete the line-up in what is sure to be a great weekend for the town.

Jam Festival Live! is the only part of the weekend ticketed with tickets costing £10 (£6 concessions and £25 for family of four, from Carluke Lifestyles Centre.
