Singing in Scotland

I'm planning a trip to Scotland sometime in August or maybe September and would like to find out where some folks might be singing and making music. Anyone out there have any information? I'd like to ride my bike a bit, so I'm thinking August would be better weather for riding...

You might also try http://www.folkmusic.net/ ald look for The Living Tradition (excellent folk music mag!). I haven't visited yet but the paper issue carries folk club listings, so I think they must be there as well. If not, look out for the mag once you get to Scotland. It is published in Kilmarnock. - Susanne

August in Scotland can be gloriously sunny and warm. However, I wouldn't count on it and if you are goin to be riding a bike, your chances of getting wet sometime in the week are high, esp. on the West coast. Take your waterproof gear.

I was in Scotland in August of 1999. In the town of Portree on Skye, the local people held a ceilidh on Saturday evening.

I don't know if this was a special event or if they do it on a regular basis. It was very enjoyable. Anyway Portree is worth going to. I'll be going back some day.

Mr Lemon was up near Inverness just.
he went to 2 venues I suggested from my research posted a week ago.
search for threads on Scotland.
I will post his adventures on that thread when I have de-briefed him.
let us know what you find when you get back.
