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.

Still going

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.

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.
Kenny.

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

Re: Blue Lamp

The Aberdeen music community is in mourning today at news of the death in hospital of Blue Lamp proprietor Sandy Broon.

Very sad news in a sad time.

I’m sure many feel bereft, as I do.
Folkies, jazzers, all sorts. The Lampie was our musical home.

Re: Blue Lamp

You got there before me , Bren. Very sad - and unexpected - news. Sandy allowed us to disrupt the peace in his pub on Monday nights for I don’t know how many years now, and the Blue Lamp has been the home of Aberdeen Folk Club for several years now as well. The Aberdeen jazz community are going to miss him as well.
I’m sure I speak for all the regulars from our Monday nights in sending condolences to Sandy’s family. RIP.
Hoping we can all meet up again to play some music, and sink a few beers, in memory of Sandy.
