The Anchor have a weekend of live music to get you through the Christmas holidays, starting tonight.

Local Matt Hickman of popular band Brownbear will perform a free show at 9pm tonight.

Since launching their album in Glasgow in April the band have continued to expand their horizons taking to as many stages as possible.

Preforming at the sold-out festival Kendal Calling and Kelburn Garden Party, the Largs frontman always loves coming back home to perform.

The live music will continue on Friday December 28 with Twin Alibi from 9.30pm.

Saturday will see Gavin playing from 9.30pm and on Sunday there will be regular performers Drew Galt and Friends from 8.30pm.
