This thread is about places that you play in the UK

Let's try and get a map of where you guys hang out. Post links if you have them.

Any favourite venues?
Regular slots?
Open mic nights you would recommend

Cheers

I live in Scotland and up here in the Northeast we have the Findhorn Open Mic. It's quite good, and I often go there with Joost (my guitar teacher). Some of my fellow folk-clubbers also go, as I also go to the Lossiemouth Folk Club (which turns into the Lossiemouth Folk Festival the third weekend of July). Absolutely love it, and am able to play the songs I want to play with people who want to hear them and I can be myself aswell.

Hey Guys,

When this virus stuff is over, I am thinking of revisiting the UK. Wysha, (seems like we have a member named Joost, wonder if they are the same person?) we'd love to meet up with you in Scotland when we go.

Same to you Nigel! I hope you're well,

Brian
