Music Sessions
These happen across town during the festival. Regular venues include Kerymor Tavern (up from the campsite on Glamis Road), Three Bellies Brae (generally instrumental in the main bar with singing sessions through the back), Roods Bar, Rennies Shop (2 St Malcolm’s Wynd), Airlie Arms (downstairs lounge) and Thrums Hotel. We’ve put some of the main sessions in the programme to give everyone a better idea of what goes on most years. This is just a guide, however, and visiting musicians are welcome to start an impromptu session where appropriate.
