Scottish Session

I run a Scottish traditional music session every Monday evening on Peckham Rye - if you play a suitable instrument and would like to play some Scottish music once in a while, we're a friendly bunch. The session has been running a while now; our first one was away back in March 2013. You can join the mailing list here, or if you email me I can add you.

Location is the Clock House, at 196A Peckham Rye, SE22 9QA. Local buses are the 12, 197, 63, 363, and it's about 20 minutes walk from any of East Dulwich, Peckham Rye, or Nunhead stations.


We play every Monday. From 7pm we are upstairs in "Blake's Bar" to learn a new tune or twa, then from 8pm downstairs at tempo.


The word set should not necessarily be taken to mean the below are played in the order they appear or together. Some sets we play very consistently, others less so...please do let me know if there's anything missing or that you'd like to see. Requests welcome! Note the list is generally quite a bit out of date but if it's on the list, we should know it...
