What sort of folkie?
I'm not too young any more myself (sigh), but there is plenty going on in the young trad scene. And quite a few of the sessions have a good younger contingent.

"Young" to me means 25 or under, by the way... :)

The Usige Beatha sessions on a Sunday night are pretty well-mixed, age-wise.

So, I'd say, look around... it's there.

Whereabouts are you then, akenaton?

Shona, do you play, sing, listen? And are you more interested in contemporary or trad stuff? If you can let me know roughly what your interest is, I can maybe be of more help.

If you need a singaround, Wednesday evening in Café Source, which is in Saint Andrews In The Square (SAINTS) off Saltmarket.

From 8:00 pm until about 11:30. Admission free.
Mostly singing, occasional tune.

For a more mixed tunes/singing sesh, try Uisge Beatha,Woodlands Road on Sunday evenings from around 6pm. Mixed age range. Young studenty clientele.

For trad tunes, Ben Nevis Argyle Street on a Wednesday.

There is lots more, but that's just a couple....


Cheers

I'm only young at heart, but a Glasgow meet of Mudcatters sounds like a great idea to me.

If we use the Cafe Source singaround, we should try to get there before it starts, say 7.00 or 7.30 so we can introduce ourselves. Once the singing starts it keeps going.

Cheers, John

OK then, why don't we meet next Wed at 7.30 in the Cafe Source session, everyone who can make it...? We can organise another one for when Shonagh arrives - or, you never know, it might become a regular thing!
I will be the one who is 25 but looks younger carrying a bloody great accordion.

Nothing much happens before 8pm because the place is full of diners.

This is really the only dedicated singers session in Glasgow.

You get decent order mostly and you don't have to compete with the endless widdling of box and fiddle merchants showing each other the hundred and fifty variations of the Masons Apron.

A lot of good people go there to sing and there's a lot of experience to draw on.

So if you've a hunger for good songs....

Hey Crystal. Dundee is something of a folk-free zone, it was when I lived there and it remains so to this day, despite the large numbers of Irish students who go there.
Try Mickey Coyle's on Hawkhill on a Monday night. Some of my old mates still play there and the crack's usually good. If you take an instrument in they'll give you a seat.

hopefully more people will be able to attend next wednesday; seems this one might be a bit of a non-event, at least as far as mudcat gatherings are concerned. i'll be there next wednesday anyway. i reckon turning up a wee bit earlier, as suggested, is a good idea (7.30 sounds good). we should be pretty obvious with our instruments clattering about in the wee café anyway. im the odd looking guy with the guitar, long black hair and denim jaikit.

also, the code phrase is: "spring is a lovely time of the year". *taps nose*

Kenny,

The 7:30 idea was so that the Mudcatter's could have a drink, chat and introduce ourselves to each other before the session takes off, save us talking while you are singing. :-)).

And especially saves anyone talking while Big Jim McKenna is singing.

I value my kneecaps way too much.

Come to think of it, I may have (very very politely) asked someone to "shut the f*** up!" while I was trying to sing a couple of weeks back...

And don't mention the hairdressers to Kenny.
(With apoplogies to Randy Newman...)
Hairdressers have no manners
hairdressers have no manners
Hairdressers have no manners at a-all..
They have nasty little scissors going snip, snip, snip
They have great big mouths going lip, lip ,lip
Don't need no hairdressers,
Don't need no hairdressers,
Don't need no hairdressers round here

(Actually, in Kenny's case, and mine, that last line is depressingly true...)

There is nothing depressing about having no need for hairdressers!

Male pattern baldness is perfectly natural and is a similar process to a Gorilla becoming a silverback.

It marks us out as elder statesmen in the community.

So there!

The world needs no twittering hairdressers!

I got awful drunk on that Arran Blonde ale last night.

But that was a better session than we've had for ages

Nice to have some fresh new voices.

MacReadie was on great form, and so were Steve and Tom.

I wasn't but that's allowed sometimes when you're a silverback.

And no twittering hairdressers!

Second that emulsion.

Although I arrived too late to get in on the introductions, the new voices - (Daisy and friends?) were very welcome. And I hope the rest of us weren't too elderly or decrepit for you to be seen in our company. And even if we were, don't worry, we won't tell anyone...

The great thing is that when you get to hear new voices singing different songs, it gives you a kick up the behind and makes you think about doing different stuff...

Kenny says he was awful drunk. I didn't notice, to be honest...
Call that drunk? Just you wait. I'll show you drunk. You want to see how to forget words, chords, tune, how to speak? I'll show you... just you wait...

Just for reference, Daisy..
"Thursday night upstairs" is the Star Club. They do have floor spots, and are very welcoming to new faces, but it's a folk club-format and not a session. It usually goes (as best I understand it but if anyone knows better, please correct me):

************************************
Opening Floor Spot (maybe 20 minutes)
Guest Artist
************************************
Break
************************************
Second Floor Spot(s)
Guest Artist
************************************

Admission to Opening Floor Spot is (again, as I understand it) free, but otherwise in the £5-£6 range.


Just thought you better know, in case you turned up, set for a sesh, and were disappointed....


Cheers

Star folk club format.

Opening spot is generally arranged in advance, usually by invitation.

The club tries to marry up suitable support for the act that's on if possible.

The combinations are often unlikely but that's down to availability.

The second spot is turn up and ask Tom Holmes, or whoever's compere, and if there's space you may get a spot.
