Welcome to Edinburgh University Folk Society.
Get involved with some of the great things we have going on during the week:
Session – Tuesday 9-midnight FolkSoc Room, Pleasance
The main event – a great place for tunes, songs and socialising.
If you’ve never been before then feel free to bring an instrument or come along for a listen.
Learn some new tunes by ear before our Tuesday session. Taught by a different member each week.
Tune books are also another good way of learning FolkSoc favourites.
Learn the sets to perform as part of our Ceilidh Band.
We also provide workshops in calling dances and use of a P.A.
Another session! Traditional music from the Isle of Mann, with teaching interspersed throughout the session for anybody less familiar with Manx tunes.
Runs the first and third Wednesday of every month.
Tune teaching and session with dance tunes from all over Europe, from Brittany to Macedonia.
In partnership with EdinBal. Runs the second and fourth Wednesday of every month.
A chance to learn new folk songs – including some in Gaelic!
Location might vary so please sign up to our newsletter for more information.
The FolkSoc Room is located within The Pleasance. Ask at reception for directions!
Membership is £3 and is payable to the treasurer at a Tuesday session.
