Subject: Scottish Clubs in June?
From: GUEST,guest Ed SIlberman

Im planning a trip to Scotland in June and hope to take in a folk club or two. My interest is more in traditional song than singer-songwriters or world music. And a good ol' sing-around or a tunes session would make me happier than a show. Looking at Edinburgh, Inverness, Portree, June 10 thru 15, give or take. Appreciate all leads. You can write to directly if you'd rather: ensilberman@aol.com

The TMSA Keith festival might fit your interests, though maybe not your itinerary if you want to be in Skye at the same time.

It's been some years since I've been to the British Isles. But when I was there, I found that the a good way to find traditional music was to ask at the front desk of a hotel. The tourist office for the town you are in is another likely source.

We are planning a trip in June ourselves and are amazed to discover that not even festivals have info on the net about their 2014 events.

Lossiemouth. Every Tuesday in the "Beach Bar." A mix of tunes and songs of all genres.

If you're passing through Falkirk it has an excellent club every Thursday night starting at 8.30pm.

That might work in Portree or Melrose but not in a city.


The tourist office for the town you are in is another likely source.

Not likely at all in a big place. They'll just point you at commercially promoted concerts and say "sorry you're too early for T in the Park".

Music shops are usually a good bet. Any place with mandolins in the window is likely to know what people do with them.

I wrote something very similar, Jack- but the post got lost :(

In which part of 'The British Isles' did this work for you, leeneia? Try it anywhere in England- except perhaps in the North-East- and they won't have a clue what you're talking about.

I'd suggest The Wally Dug in Edinburgh, Ed- but it's the first Sunday of the month.

No doubt more people with ideas will be along shortly :)

I'd be a bit careful talking about 'The British Isles' while touring Scotland and Ireland.

Well done, FreddyHeadey for such a comprehensive list for 2018.
The OP was in 2014, and had the pleasure of meeting Ed at a couple of sessions in Edinburgh During 2014: another "power to your elbow" for Mudcat!
