TALENTED young musicians around Dumbarton and the Vale are being asked to audition for a coveted busking spot to entertain locals and visitors this summer.

The Loch Lomond Shores shopping complex is inviting people of all ages to send in an audition clip for a chance to be added to their rota and be offered regular summer gigs.

The appeal comes after the loosening of covid restrictions allowed the Balloch mall to reopen and welcome shoppers once more.

Bosses have previously welcomed local lad Alfie King, singer-songwriter Ben Monteith, and tribal band Clann An Drumma.

Anyone keen to audition for a slot later this summer is asked to upload a short clip showcasing their talent to lochlomondshores.com/musical-talent-wanted/.
