The ‘Plockton session’

Led by Wilfar Matheson of ‘Incredible Fling band’ fame, a mighty singer of eclectic taste, this session has a broad repertoire. From time to time it will have east-coast songs from Christine Kydd, Dougie Pincock on Nigel Richard’s recently developed ‘session’ pipes as well as a line-up including uilleann pipes, button-box and fiddles.

Still going….

6 years since there’s been a comment on this, although it came up in a recent discussion. Just thought I’d mention that it’s still going strong, and is now my regular session, at least during school term time. Anything goes, really, and the regular bill of fare is a mixture of Scottish and Irish tunes, and a few contemporary “country” songs.

I’ll add more as I remember them, but if you know any of the above, that should be enough for you to join in on at least a few of the sets.
