Blue Lamp Session, Aberdeen
The Blue Lamp affectionately known as "The Lampie" is a well established and well known Aberdeen music venue.
The session on Monday nights is graced by lots of good Scottish, Shetland and Irish music.
Poeple roll up about 10 ish and you don’t get thrown out early.
Still going strong
I can report that this very enjoyable session is still going strong. About 20 musicians in all came and went on the course of the evening when I was there last week.
Quieter during school holidays
The Lampie tends to be less busy during the holidays, as SCaT tutelage isn’t running then, hence fewer players turn up. It took a while to get going last night (wasn’t in full swing until about 11!). And the Atholl Highlanders was played twice in the space of twenty minutes! Oh no! Na, it’s a great tune. Try and make it if you can.
In response to "Guernsey Pete’s" request to keep sessions up-to-date, this session is still going, and doesn’t show any signs of expiring.
Still going… just, Been very quiet recently.
The map was well out - I’ve updated the address, and it’s better, but showing the wrong side of the street.

Re: Blue Lamp
Sad to report that this session appears to have bit the dust, due to poor attendance. If you do come to Aberdeen and are looking for a few tunes, please contact me through a private message here, and I’ll see what can be done.
Thanks to those of you who did drop in past over the years.
Re: Blue Lamp November 2019
YES… The Blue Lamp is back on the session list. It did fizzle away for a spell but thanks to a few dedicated locals we are resurrecting it and things are looking positive. Monday night from 9pm onwards. It gets going after 10 once folk settle in. We have a public Facebook group here https://www.facebook.com/groups/BlueLampRevivalSession/?ref=bookmarks
