BABS in Edinburgh
The British Association of Bodhran Sophisticates (BABS) will be holding their annual conference in Edinburgh from 27th to 30th of May, the bank holiday weekend.
This international gathering has been going for a number of years, this will be our 12th conference, and now attracts something like 2,000 bodhran players from all over the globe.
I have the privilege of being President of BABS this year, hence the purpose of this post.
Perhaps some of the contributors to this sight have knowledge of sessions in the Edinburgh region, sessions which would be happy to welcome an influx of visiting musicians. I know of a few places in Edinburgh, but all suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
Last year’s conference, held in Vienna, was a great success, and BABS are hoping to build on that triumph.
As President, I am confident that the good people and musicians will welcome us to that fair city.
Thanking you all in advance for any help or suggestions.
