News, salutations and congratulations. What a to do and it is all to do with our friends at the Edinburgh Folk Club.

The 15th MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards and Gala Concert takes place on Saturday 2 December 2017 at Lagoon Centre, Paisley.

Being nominated for the Club Of The Year award lends them a decidedly optimistic chuckle – winning it would simply be very remarkable! Possibly, not definitely – but just maybe?

Edinburgh Folk Club, aka EFC, fosters an interest in the wide international world of folk and related musics.

The club held its first meeting on Wednesday 3 October 1973 and has been in continuous existence since (now in its 45th season).

EFC meets weekly on Wednesday evenings in the Pleasance Cabaret Bar for 40 weeks from September to early July. The essential ethos is – you have a string-given thing you want to sing– just turn up and pay the admission charge at the door.
