The Canon

Weekly session, not for beginners, concentrating on Scottish tunes, about a third of which are pipe tunes.
A few airs, lots of marches, strathspeys, reels, jigs and waltzes. No songs.
Visitors very welcome. Starts around 8:30 and ends 11:30 or occasionally after midnight.

Still going strong. Only difference is that there is one song each week as Dawn, the publican, likes a bit of "cheese".
Currently up to three or four fiddles, mandolin, two whistles, flute, border pipes, small pipes, guitar and bodhran, with more occasional Northumbrian pipes.

After a 17-month hiatus the Canon session started up again on the 9th of August 2021.

Going nicely. It’s been great to have a few new regulars as well as a few visiting players over the late summer/autumn.
