I hope you haven't left yet, or if you have that someone emailed you
off-list. Your best bet for details would be to buy a copy of 'The List',
which is the events listing magazine for Edinburgh and Glasgow and comes
out every two weeks. Regular sessions are listed, as well as one-off
For a rough idea of sessions:
Friday: The Victoria Bar (I'll be there tonight)
Saturday: Babbity Bowsters
The Scotia Bar
Sunday: Babbity Bowsters?
My knowledge is really only on hearsay and my geography of the area is
sketchy, but these bars are all very central. The Babbity Bowsters ones
(may be just the one) definitely need confirming; I heard it was a Scots
session. I think another irish one has started up somewhere, but as I
say, this is just what I've heard on the grapevine.In addition there is a
midweek session (Monday?) with the McHughs in Sharkey's Bar, which is
behind the Citizen's Theatre in the Gorbals district.
Taxis in Glasgow seem really cheap compared with Edinburgh and
Glaswegians are friendly, so I'm sure you'll get on fine.
