The Beastie aka The Red Lion Pub

Last Saturday of each month from 4 til 7pm. This is a well attended session in a nice pub. It can get a bit tight for space but a welcome awaits regardless. A good mix of tunes including strathspeys, so come prepared.We usually have a couple of pipers, fiddles, whistlers, guitars and the rest. Songs are sung too. It’s a decent mix of Scots and Irish tunes. The standard is pretty good but learners are welcome too.

Sundays 8pm to 11pm. Great session, good atmosphere. All players, any standard most welcome. Taken over from the Old mill and the Abbey.

Not happening at the moment and not likely to start again as of October 2021

Re: The Red Lion Pub

The Red Lion ‘Beastie’ is now the Bonnie Beastie, which is entirely different style and vibe, and now has a session scene - still in development, so not sure the regular heartbeat yet. There are plenty excellent local players around in support, so if you’re in the area call Gordon on 07811 380438 to check what might be happening….

Every Sunday, 2-6pm, according to the pub’s Facebook page.
