Bo’ness singer and songwriter Eve McAuley will be debuting her latest EP when she headlines at the Culross music festival this month.

“I’m really excited about gigging live again,” said Eve, “since I’ve been mostly recording this past while and it’s great to get out and do a live concert again.”

The singer is known mostly for her covers of KT Tunstall, Amy MacDonald and Adele but she is also a prolific songwriter in her own right.

She will be playing songs from her EP ‘‘Easily’’ for the first time to a live audience.

Eve added: “I think the 
Culross festival will be an 
ideal audience for my own songs.

“I gig in clubs and venues a lot and tend to do mainly covers but this will be a fitting event to air my own material and I’m looking forward to it.”

Eve will be headlining on Sunday, August 18, with the band Hardwood.

And the four-day Culross Festival has a packed programme.

The village will be alive with the sound of music from Thursday to Sunday, August 15-18, with musicians, singers, actors and storytellers as 
the annual festival comes around.

New to the event this year is a children’s book fayre for burgeoning bookworms.

Festivities begin on Thursday, August 15, at 7.30pm with an opening concert featuring songs through the ages by
 Culross Festival Choir at The Abbey.

The village green on Friday will light up with ceilidh bands Shamanic and The Jiggers kicking off at 7.45pm.

The kids bookfest includes storytelling and dramatisations and a drama workshop starting at 10.30am on 
Saturday at Culross Palace with a multi-band line-up for the Gig on the Green from 2.30-10.30pm.

Sunday sees Coro Alba take the stage with operatic arias in the gardens of Abbey House from 2-4pm. Eve McAuley and the band Hardwood will headline on Sunday at Culross Abbey from 8pm.
