For London (and nearby) folk clubs and events you should check the Folk London site. There's a diary on the site.

Paul Hathway makes excellent instruments but not, I'm afraid, hurdy gurdies.

we are staying near bayswater station. i imagine there is some folk cd shop with allkinds of fablous stuff not easily got in canada.

the yellow pages are pretty terse here. i guess i'll go over to sharpe house tuesday and sing a canadian song or two.

i looked in the market on portobello. few instruments, and fewer buskers.i used to busk there thirty five years ago. i did see a great fiddler in the tube near westminster station.

i'd love to go to scotland too but it may be too far to work in. i'm a cape breton scotts gael with a little acadien mixed in. any scottish or irish music shops in london that anyome can recomend. either for instruments or recordings?

ifound a hurdy gurdy string supplier!! got to get it up and running when i get home.

For Scottish music recordings I don't think you'll do better than the humungous HMV in Oxford Street.

For Greek instruments you're surely best contacting the maker directly.

I know a gurdy maker in Glasgow (John Hunter) but he works very slowly and never has a finished instrument in stock waiting for a buyer. But he could make you exactly what you want if you have some special design in mind.
