One for your diaries: Saturday 13th June come see Turadh at the Club.
Creative harpist Isbel Pendlebury and outstanding fiddle player Emma Donald combine their individualistic styles and compositions to form Turadh – a dynamic duo of original Scottish music with a contemporary twist. Their Highland roots and mutual interest in neo-traditional music initially brought them together in order to push the boundaries of what is expected from their instruments in exciting and challenging music. 
Members: Donations | Guests: £10.00 (Eventbrite link to come.)

- Special Announcement:
Trina Bohan Art Group is starting to use the Studio on Wednesday mornings 10am -1pm, from June 5th until July 10th. This is a group of 10-12 artists and painters, who formerly hired space in Custom House Leith. This is not a class, but a group of serious established painters, who find it beneficial to work together regularly, and benefit from each others’ company. Membership of the group entails termly prepayment to Trina. They are not a closed group - and in fact would like to welcome 2 new members from our numbers for this coming term. This requires prepayment of £66 for the 6 weeks and must be prepaid to Trina Bohan in advance. If you are interested please contact the Club office. Alternatively Trina invites occasional drop-ins if there is space available on the day (fee £13.00 to be paid on the day). Please note - there is no tuition, just boards and easels and occasional professional models.
