Thread Name: Pub music in Scotland?
Subject: RE: Pub music in Scotland
Ten years later, in the SW Scotland area, I can only speak for the Wigtownshire section. There used to be mainly Irish & mainly music sessions in Isle of Whithorn & Wigtown, but no more.
The Isle pub was lovely, but now an overpriced & pretentious restaurant & I believe the Wigtown pub had structural problems?
The Jones family run a mainly Irish music session in the Vault Arts Centre in Newton Stewart on a Friday, once a month.
The Stranraer folk club still operates, I think & they have a FB page for details, but apart from that, as far as I'm aware, nothing else. I have a few sheep & they seem to like the music.
