WORK is continuing apace behind the scenes as organisers confirm bookings, check out acts, prepare fundraisers and get ready for ticket sales for Live@Troon 2012.
And the first of those fundraisers promises to be another sensational night for the festival team, when A Taste of Live@Troon unfolds at the Walker Hall in the town on Saturday, May 19.
Melisa Kelly, whose fan base grows by the week as she performs to appreciative audiences Ayrshire and Glasgow, is among this year’s starring acts.
A fine songwriter with a powerful, enchanting voice, Melisa’s shows are stunning with or without her backing band, the Harmless Thieves.
Also on the bill is Scott Nicol, another local artiste with a growing army of fans and a knack of writing great songs. He has just completed filming the video for his forthcoming single, New York City Summer’s Day.
Another not-to-be-missed act comes in the form of The Moothie Man – aka Stuart Farquharson – whose virtuoso performance on the harmonica is delivered with an equally entertaining presentation by a musician who has understandingly won awards for his act at home and abroad.
He’s an old friend of Live@Troon and filled the dancefloor at last year’s show.
Tickets for the evening are just £15, which includes a buffet. Go along for a guaranteed night of fine music and fun – and there are great prizes to be won, too.

As the thousands of visitors who converged on the town last year will testify, the festival is more than just a sensational weekend of local, national and international acts.
