GUEST,Jim I Folk music in Edinburgh? (31) RE: Folk music in Edinburgh? 28 Jun 02


There is apparently still something (?) in the Waverley on Thursdays. I was in there two weeks ago for a reunion with about 6 other old Waverleyites from the late 60's early 70's. Most of us hadn't met since then but it was as if we had never parted.

And yes I well remember all you those you mention Murray. I can even still play the first two chords of Bill Fulton's "If I had an Umbrella - I'd use it every day-ay-ay".

I remember Dick Gaughan playing there one night and offering a barrel of beer to anyone who could join in a chorus - He sang "Here's Good Luck to the Pint Pot" to a silent pub. The following week he sang it again (without the offer) and the whole pub joined in!!

Happy days

Jim
