Scottish version of The Session?

Scottish version of The Session?

Just like the title says…I’m looking for a Scottish version of The Session. A site with a music forum like here but for Scottish music. Anyone have any (civil) suggestions? Thanks.

Re: Scottish version of The Session?

Not as nice as the board setup here but it will work. Thanks.

Re: Scottish version of The Session?

Thanks. I’ve never been to Nigel’s site before. It looks like a great resource.

Re: Scottish version of The Session?

I’ve been a bit preoccupied with work and my health, so I’ve neglected my forum for many months. It could never rival thesession but it’s a wee corner where you can talk about Scottish music.

Re: Scottish version of The Session?

I know the feeling, Nigel. We can maybe compare notes sometime.. :-)
Hope you are keeping much better now.

Old style forums seem to be falling out of favour these days although this one and a few others remain popular. There are a few Face Book sites for Scottish music but, although I check them from time to time, I don’t contribute actively to them. I’m not really a FB fan.

Anyway, whether or not the forum itself can be revived, Nigel’s site is a very useful resource. Not only for tunes but as insight to Scottish music in general

Another interesting site is http://www.campin.me.uk/
Jack used to be a member here until he "took the huff" a year or two back.

If only those websites were as good as The Session. Jeremy did a pretty good job organizing this site.
When I first started learning Scottish tunes, I had to google the sheet music, recordings, etc. It was very exhausting. I started learning Old-Time tunes this year, and the situation is the same; there is no Old-Time version of the session.
