Beiore suggesting you get into the country. I must mention the Glasgow concert oi Patrick Street on the 24th. The tour talents are among the greatest living Irish instrumentalists. and though not guaranteed to always gel as a band. are always worth seeing. Jackie Daly on the button box and Kevin Burke on the iiddle are superb. Then on stringed instruments and vocals the reiined styles oi Arty McGlynn and Andy Irvine. See photo.

It you live East or West. head out this weekend into an Indian Summer. and leave the city behind. Melrose inthe Borders and Tarbert in Argle are holding theiriirstlolk musiciestivals over the weekend 16th—18th. concerts. dances and well respected guest musicians and bands. both in lovely wee towns in splendid countryside. with ample camp sites and hotel accomodation.
