I am looking forward to a trip to the UK in May/June (unfortunately without my EC or other instruments).  Having been a regular at a UK style folk club in Northern Virginia for many years, I have plotted my upcoming travels against folk club listings and plan to stop at a few when events sync with my itinerary.  As I'm likely missing many and have not plotted any concertina happenings I thought I would list my itinerary here in hopes others can recommend events I might like to attend, music or otherwise.


5/20-21: Glasgow

5/22-23: Oban

5/24: Inverness

5/25-26: Edinburgh

5/27-28: Keswick (Lake District)

5/29-30: Askrigg (Yorkshire Dales)

5/31- 6\1: York

6/2: Llandudno (North Wales)

6\3-4: Pembrokeshire

6/5: Gloucester

6/6: Chipping Norton (Cotswalds)

6/7-10: Plymouth


When driving around Ireland a few years ago I was able to get to many musical events and hope to do the same this year in UK. Thanks for any suggestions you can give me.

there is a concertina band workshop day at Stamford Lincolnshire on Sunday 10th June. Edited to add - it might not fit with your visit to Plymouth!

18th to 20th May is the Swaledale Squeeze (see thread elsewhere on this), perhaps you won't be there yet. See also my PM.
