Folk or traditional Music

We will be in Mainland for the nights of June 10th, 11th and 12th. (that's a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday). We'd love to find someplace to listen to traditional or folk music. Any suggestions?

Keep your eye on this website http://www.wrigleyandthereel.com/ or pop in to The Reel in Kirkwall and ask what is on.

As I actually live & work in Orkney hopefully I can give you some advice.

On most Monday evenings there is a traditional music session held in the Harray Community hall. Also as the previous person stated try the Reel cafe bar next to the Cathedral in Kirkwall as they often have sessions on - but not often mid week.

When you actually arrive in Orkney go into the Visit Orkney tourist information office in Kirrkwall or Stromness and ask them for that weeks "what's on" & also look in our local paper to see what is listed.

Hope this helps and you enjoy visiting our beautiful islands
