Preparations are also under way for the 10th Carrying Stream Festival between 9th-13th November 2011.
Details will be promulgated in due course.

Also, for our final pre Christmas gig we welcome back DAVE SWARBRICK who will perform along with Cathal McConnell and Duncan Wood on Wednesday 14th December.

Well worth taking out a membership, methinks, and make your pensions and/or student loans go just that little bit further.

We are now closed for the Summer.

Although we have had a somewhat patchy season, there's plenty of life in the old dog yet(No way to talk about our compere).
We also finished off with two exceptionally busy nights featuring Stairheid Gossip and North Sea Gas which were enjoyed by many....

Hope to see you all back with us in the Autumn.

Another 'well-balanced diet" - congratulations on securing such a good range of acts.

Someone suggested there were too many "MAMWIGS" but we have plenty of others too. Besides, they are quality acts and it makes good sense to take advantage of the opportunity to feature these good acts when they are available.

We also have some very interesting and highly recommended performers from the younger generation too. Something for everyone, we hope.

I've never eaten a MAMWIG before in my well balanced diet! Explain for the uninitiated, please!

Aha! Define Middle Aged! Term used loosely methinks!
(But then "60 is the new 40" etc)

From the Paddy One...

"We’ve also got some very exciting plans for this year’s Carrying Stream Festival which is our tenth with a celebration of the first People’s Festival Ceilidh – 60 years on, at the original venue, Oddfellows Hall (now Malone’s) with Phil Cunningham and a host of singers and musicians who will mark the anniversary and trace the journey the Scottish Folk Revival has travelled since. That will be on Thursday, 10 November.
Two days later, we’ll have a Gala Concert in the Pleasance Theatre involving staff and students from the School of Scottish Studies and the Royal Academy (now Royal Conservatoire) – celebrating 60 years of the School and the opening of the School’s archive and The Annual Hamish Henderson Lecture will be given by Owen Dudley Edwards, on Saturday, 12 November."

Further details to follow but the good news for lovers of Scottish traditional music is that we've secured an appearance from Carol Anderson and Martin McDonald for the Sunday night concert. Don't miss this one.

Please see

Well done, t' committee, a veritable feast. If the MAMWIGS are those MAMWIGS, I don't think there'll be any complaints!

Barring illness, pse keep me a ticket for the lot, John.

I've just nicked the link to this You Tube compilation by our desk person Jack.
A sound man in every respect.

It's a nice wee taster of what we have coming up in the next few weeks.
