Edinburgh Folk Club is a great weekly club that showcases the wide international world of folk and related music.

The club held its first meeting on Wednesday 3 October 1973 and has been in continuous existence since then bringing artists from all over the world to the Cabaret Bar at The Pleasance!

The club meets weekly on a Wednesday evening and it’s not compulsory to be a member to be able to attend the club's weekly shows - just turn up and pay the admission charge at the door!

 

The Tannahill Weavers are one of Scotland's premier traditional bands and recently celebrated 50 years of global touring. Their diverse repertoire spans centuries of Scottish culture with fiery, driving instrumentals, topical songs and original ballads.

 

In 2011 the band was inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame, and in 2014 they were joined by innovative piper Lorne MacDougall. Lorne comes with a high pedigree, having arranged and performed pipes for the Disney Pixar movie Brave, along with a long list of other accomplishments.
