Re: The Trip To The Market

The Market Bar is somewhat of an institution in Inverness.
Arguably, it is not a place for the faint hearted but there have been some great nights up there with a variety of folk related music(s) over the years albeit performed there on the small stage as opposed to sessions.

In my very young days, it was quite a wild place to be avoided with lots of scraps and women of ill repute but during the early seventies it was refurbished and taken over by an Aberdeen(or Shire?) couple who introduced nightly folk gigs. At that time, things were fairly sedate and almost like a folk club both in terms of the music and atmosphere. However, things changed over the years along with the management (Speedie and Co)to the pub we know and love today.

For many years, it was also one of the very few town centre bars which managed to avoid the dreaded curfew which was handy to know if you fancied a last drink or two before getting home. It’s well worth a visit for the experience and if you catch it on a good night you’ll have a great time.

Re: “Trip to the Market” by Bodega

Here’s a version of this tune I found by Bodega a while back. It’s paired with the lyrical puirt-à-beul “Cha tig an latha” and “Thoir a-nall Ailean thugam.”
