Scottish Night - An evening of traditional song and banter with some of Edinburgh's finest folk artists

Music and song, washed down with a few drams and ales, have become a Scottish institution, and are now intertwined and inseparable from its culture. The words and tunes were often born in taverns, the watering holes of its makars and minstrels. Today the tradition still survives in pubs all over Scotland, with new voices and writing talents emerging from the old. Hamish Henderson, father of the Scottish folk revival, christened it 'the carrying stream of tradition', a stream which meanders the length and breadth of Scotland from the Border country to the Shetland Isles. This evening's entertainment dives deep into the 'stream' and surfaces with many of the city's famous singers and musicians and is a unique example of Edinburgh's musical genius.
This event is performed after dinner in a local restaurant or in a local pub. The choice is yours.
