THE quality of local entertainers was evident on Friday night when Cowdenbeath Rotary Club’s community concert took the stage at Lochgelly Centre.

Singing and dancing of all types entertained the audience of almost 200 people, over the course of three hours.

And there was also a special appearance from one of the stars of BBC television’s new Gladiators series, local lady Sheli McCoy, who was Sabre on the recently screened series.

She is the niece of rotary club president, John Gilfillan, who said: “Sabre was in the area and when she heard about the concert she volunteered to get involved, which was excellent.

“The quality of the people who took part was first class, and a credit to show director Elaine Green.”

The card included the ‘The Fifer Pipers’, of the Black Watch Cadets Pipe band; the dancing feet of the Romi Clarke School of Dance; fun and music from the Heilan Cooboys, Linton and John, whose songs came from everywhere ranging from Mull to Memphis; and acoustic rock from ‘Nameless and Shameless’.

In addition, the gala performance had the Kelty Evangelical Gospel Choir presenting ‘Oh Happy Days’; ‘Ensemble’ presenting music and songs from Bernstein and Sondheim; ‘Bethany and Bro’, the Dewar brother and sister team entertaining with the talent which captured the Beath High School Music Award; and ‘Soul Accord and Co’, local ladies united in harmony.
