    Traditional music sessions

    So that's: Monday - Blue Lamp, bar Tuesday - Glentanar Wednesday - Blue Lamp Friday - Heugh Hotel, Stoney Sunday - Prince of Wales and The Carmelite Not bad going. Any more?

    Traditional music sessions

    Cheers Chris and Flossie. I was wondering whether the Globe session was still on the go, but that answers that question. I'm not sure I'm up to the standard of participating in a SCaT session, but I'll go and listen.

    Traditional music sessions

    Aye, I had noticed there are a few sessions there. I presume the Folk Festival must attract enough interest to sustain sessions all year round. It's incredible that the town can support two musical instrument shops as well.

    Traditional music sessions

    Does anyone know where and when traditional music sessions happen regularly in Aberdeen or roon aboot? I believe there's one in the Prince of Wales and one in the Carmelite on a Sunday, and there's the Aberdeen Folk Club in the Blue Lamp on a Wednesday (although it's not always a session). Are there any more?

    Accordion Tuition

    I might wait and see if this Norman character recommends him!

    Accordion Tuition

    Thanks very much, I'll give that a try.

    Accordion Tuition

    Does anybody know of anyone offering accordion tuition in Aberdeen? I'd hoped either Bruce Millers or ScaT would offer it, but apparently not. There's nothing in the Phone Book or on the RnB noticeboard, either.
  8. From the Aberdeen Trades Council: "Please note that this year there will be no traditional May Day March down Union Street due to Aberdeen City Council imposing a 2100 charge for the democratic right to march on our own streets. We will be campaigning against this outrageous and unfair local taxation on the right to peacefully march on our own streets so hopefully the right to march free of charge will be reinstated in time for our anti-racist and anti-facist March and Rally on St. Andrew's Day later this year."

    Favourite places in the north east?

    Dave, can you confirm you're attempting to compile a document of the geography of the north-east, rather than the region as a lived space? If it's the latter, I think it would be wrong to focus on the landscape of the region, rather than the people that inhabit the towns and villages. You would be better focusing on sites of communal behaviour, like the Turra show (as somebody mentioned), Peterhead port or Pittodrie. But if it's the former, I'll throw my favourite vistas into the hat: Queens View, looking on to Lochnagar; the view of Aberdeen from Brimmond Hill; the view of the Loch of Skene from Skene Primary School.

    Love Music Hate Racism event

    Thanks to all the acts who offered their services for this event. We have now combined our event with one organised by Aberdeen Student Radio, so we have several acts involved, including CCJ, Super Six Funk Machine, Cast of the Capital and DJ Kojo. Both Tunnels 1 and 2 will be used. The night will be opened by Weyman Bennett of Unite Against Fascism at 8.00. Tickets are 3, and are available from One Up, or on the door. P.S. It is tomorrow night!

    Love Music Hate Racism event

    Apologies to all those who have contacted me about this that I've yet to get back to. We have 2 acts and 2 DJs confirmed, and are deciding on the final act. I'll let everyone know who offered their services whether or not they're required, but if anyone else has any suggestions, they'll still be considered.

    Love Music Hate Racism event

    It's not what we're after this time, but this is only going to be the first in a series of gigs. We'll probably theme them, so there'll be room for experimential noise yet. You probably know more about putting on gigs from your time in bands than we do, so if you want to help out, then that'd be very welcome. Otherwise, just come to the event and enjoy the night.

    Love Music Hate Racism event

    That could work, do you have any music online?

    Love Music Hate Racism event

    The Socialist Worker Student Society at Aberdeen University are organising an Love Music Hate Racism event, to celebrate the city's multicultural community. It will be at The Tunnels on December 10th. We are in the process of confirming acts, but we still require some more. Are there any bands or DJs interested in performing? We are hoping to have a diverse, global array of sounds and styles, but will consider any music that is conducive to a party.

    Tuning a ukulele

    I got a new ukulele in the summer, but still haven't been able to tune it. When I try to tune it to what I think the pitch is, the keys turn back by themselves. When I try to tuning it to a lower pitch, the strings are too slack. Larsen B told me that there is a substance you can get to rub on the keys of a fiddle to stop them turning automatically. Does anybody know anymore about this, or how else to solve my dilemma?
