Sandy Bells Bar

Sandy Bells, Forrest Road Edinburgh is a place that attracts traditional Scottish musicians.  I used to frequent the bar many moons ago when I dated a folk guitarist. It opened my experience to the live music scene and to unaccompanied singing and harmony singing. I remember evenings there with energetic fiddles, guitars and banjoes playing those foot stomping reels and jigs. Wonderful memories. The Scottish poet Hamish Henderson and traditional folk guitarist Dick Gaughan used to go there. I took these shots one evening during a more recent trip to Edinburgh.
