I'm up here at the TMSA Keith Festival enjoying some good pub sessions stowed out with some very talented (and less talented - myself included) musicians.
It's a cracking weekend, and one which I look forward to every year. Festivities kick off this evening with a couple of concerts/ ceilidhs at various venues around the town... and some house sessions which usually go on until the wee small hours of the morning. Saturday and Sunday see all-day pub sessions and concerts in the evening before the "Orange Juice ceilidh" on Monday and departure from "The Friendly Town."
There are 15 of us staying at my parents house and, excepting myself and the future Mrs in the Burgh, not many of them are family. And its not that big a house! Mostly Festival enthusiasts from the Stirling area - where my parents are originally from.
Anyway, if you are in the area - or even if you are not - it is well worth a visit if you enjoy traditional (and not so traditional) music, some socialising and a good laugh.
I'll try and get some photos up tomorrow. If you are interested at all, there's more info here, or you can drop me an email at the address below and I'll get back to you with some details.
