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?

Unfortunately, nobody really posts there these days but you might still find some useful information from old threads.

For tunes, you could try Nigel’s site.

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.
