Festival Folk @ The Oak (The Wee Folk Club)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

For 35 days throughout the festivals, Festival Folk offers a different act every night; if you are a fan of folk music make sure you make it down to one of their £5 shows to support this venue which is one of just a few havens for acoustic music in Edinburgh. In the intimate basement room, there is an undeniably family feel to proceedings with tonight’s act—The Weekend Singers—welcoming an old friend of the venue to the stage to perform a few songs after the interval. But this by no means renders out-of-town visitors or newcomers to folk unwelcome. Rather, with more traditional songs and covers of Cat Stevens and Caledonia, there is something for everyone.

The Royal Oak, 1 Aug – 4 Sep, 8.30pm (11.00pm), £5.00, fpp204.
