As they approach their 50th anniversary in 2018, the Tannahill Weavers are one of Scotland’s premier traditional bands. Their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads and lullabies. Their music demonstrates to old and young alike the rich and varied musical heritage of the Celtic people. These versatile musicians have received worldwide accolades consistently over the years for their exuberant performances and outstanding recording efforts that seemingly can’t get better…yet continue to do just that.
Edinburgh Folk Club is an organisation which exists to foster an interest in the wide international world of folk and related musics. It is 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 club held its first meeting on Wednesday 3 October 1973 and has been in continuous existence since then.
