Hello to all,
Some of you know from the chat but, I am candian and my wife and I are planning a trip to Scotland from mid june for three weeks. I want to see many shows and would like to make contact with players and musicians to play with while visiting Scotland. Pubs, concert halls, bars, any place with good music. I like folk, country and mostly blues. Would like to try some celtic music too.
Anything that woiuld help me will be appreciated. Ideas and suggestions too!

Littlle Al Price is in Scotland.
I am polish but living and playing in Scotland just now. Check out my profile for videos with my band and if you like it I can e-mail you our gig list. I hope we will meet somewhere in Scotland.It would be nice to jam and have a chat.
Second time Al Price gets out! Once, I think Kingley told me too but I had lost his link...and his name! Peter, we exchanged on the chat if I remember. It would be cool to get together at some point! Send me your gig list so I can plan to be at a certain place when some of your gigs are on. We are used to drive great distances in Canada.
if you get the chance to catch 'Mud in your ear' go and see them whilst in Scotland. A great harp player called Gary sorry cannot remember his surname. He is friends with Al Price too. Also a good band to watch out for in Scotland are 'Baby Isaac'.
If you venture a bit further south to Newcastle then there are lots of other fine bands to catch. If you really venture south to York then come and jam with me!
Wee All Price, Baby Isaac (great female singer!), Mud in Your Ear, are all great Scottish bands. Glasgow has a thriving blues scene with lots of great players. Kev Parr from Dundee is a good guitarist in the Junior Watson style (great for harp players!). Ian McInally is a great harp player from Scotland in the West Coast style.Rev Doc and the Congregation out of Glasgow are a great band (Killer Guitarist!).

TC, I dont know if I'll have time to venture in England but, I'll sure try. You sound quite good. Fun playing!
Kingley, I am down on your links. Just got my International Driving License today. Man, I am so stressed about dring on the other side, plus all those "single" roads! Wont be time to play harp while driving like I do here!!!
Dan- If you're in Glascow, look for Fraser Speirs, a wonderful player and great guy. He was my first teacher (at a music camp here in the states); he's got a truly wonderful tone, one of the best vibratos I've ever heard. You'll dig him. If you don't catch him while you're over there, check his website, buy some cds.-Greg
