Oxjam at the Canons' Gait.
Wednesday 26 October 2016, 9:00pm sharp.


Canons' Gait Bar

We have an informal traditional session on Wednesday evenings through the year. Mainly instrumental, anybody can come along and join in. In support of Oxfam's brilliant "Oxjam Music Festival" we are having a session - but writ large !  We'll have wall-to-wall musicians with some of the most toe-tapping Scottish music you'll find (plus some Irish, English, American, etc.).
So, we'll have music. But we'll also have a raffle with some great prizes, a buffet, and some rather special guest performers.

Don't prevaricate - we've been known to sell out !

We are delighted that the following three artists have offered to donate their talents to our Megasesh event.
Sandy Brechin Sandy Brechin

“An accordionist with attitude as well as loads of talent....frequently wild and hairy" Folk Roots Magazine

“If you want to hear what an accordion can do in the right hands, put it in the right and left hands of Sandy Brechin” The Living Tradition
Charlie Munro Charlie Munro

“Munro is both fantastic in voice and performance as the wide-eyed Utterson.” Thom Dibdin

“Charlie Munro's insane Doctor Prospero verging on magnificent”, Scotsman

Has found fame this year starring as Fagin in "Oliver !" at the King's Theatre and at the Spiegeltent.


Sally Simpson

Sally Simpson

Sally Simpson is relatively new on the traditional scene, but is making waves and making a name for herself as an accomplished fiddler - and good fun as well.

The Canons' Gait Bar, 232 Canongate, Edinburgh. Wednesday 26 October 2016, 9pm (doors open 8.30) to 11.30pm.
Tickets are £10 each. On sale at the regular Wednesday evening Canons' Gait traditional sessions, and at the door (if any remaining). Alternatively, contact bob@bobmurray.co.uk.
If you can't come, don't buy a ticket - buy a virtual "nicket" (a "not-going ticket" !) - either just give us the money, or go onto JustGiving and donate there.  Raffle prizes welcome - tickets on sale on the night.


All the money from these events will go to Oxfam. All the money - the Canons' Gait is providing the venue free, all prizes are donated, the performers are all voluntary, and we are keeping our costs to zero !
