Arts / Guest to perform ‘live at lunch’ gig

AUDIENCES starved of live music will get a chance to listen to some folk and blues-tinged music next weekend when singer-songwriter Adam Guest takes to the stage at Mareel.

His band will perform in the auditorium at 1.30pm on Saturday 12 June as part of a Shetland Arts ‘Live at Lunch’ event.

It is another positive sign in the re-emergence of the live music scene following a dearth of gigs over the last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

We’re delighted to be playing at Mareel again,” Guest said.

“I think so many people are looking forward to live music and it’ll be really special to share songs and stories again in person.”

The musician has established himself on the local circuit since arriving in the isles a number of years ago, with his tunes often inspired by his native home Barnsley.

With some coronavirus restrictions still in place, the box office system is set up to automatically block off seats around each booking, keeping the appropriate distance between customers.

Shetland Arts said if people are booking for a group, “please make sure all the people in that group are in the same household (including extended households)”.

Face coverings must be worn in the auditorium unless eating or drinking, and customers are asked to take any rubbish out with them at the end of the performance and put it in the bins provided.

Shetland Arts said the Mareel auditorium is thoroughly cleaned between uses, and there is hand sanitiser available throughout the building.

Tickets can be bought online.
