Change of venue

Venue change to Ma Camerons while blackfriars is being refurbished, may become permanent, will keep you posted, Calum

Back to the old stamping ground

After a brief spell at Ma Camerons were back to the welcome embrace of Old Blackfriars. Enjoyed playing at Ma’s but it didnt look like a good long term option due to the snug being a bit cut off from the public and as it looks like they wouldnt be keeping it open past 10 o’clock every week which is nae use! On the whole I would say the snug at Ma’s is probably a better place for a Sunday afternoon session.

A nice session and very welcoming.


.. is not quite right. The bar is at the top of Marischal Street, where the East end of Union Street turns into the South end of King Street.
