The programme of Summer Sessions was started in the year 2000, under the name of Angus Folk Session, Hairst Sessions, Saturday Skirls and latterly The Trad-Angus Sessions - also working alongside Angus Council and partner projects, including The Hamecoming and The Tayroots Festival.

After 12 glorious years of this unique Scottish Music event, the Trad Angus voluntary music group is to cease, as such, after the 2013 Trad Angus Summer Sessions.

Since 2000, so many musicians and singers, from teenagers to those influenced by the 60's and 70's folk revival have been part of these events, but now many have other commitments; from moving away to persue further education, to work, career and musical commitments, to raising young families. Others that have been involved in the summer sessions have moved from New Zealand to Sweden and across the UK.

Anyway, marriages, children and work must surely be a priority, and - to quote an eminent musician from the West Coast "the music will aye be there, long after we're gone". So meantime, we're all playing music, but not all in the same place, and not all at the same time!


The weekly Tuesday session still continues in Kirriemuir, and hopefully will do so for a long time to come. Many musicians and singers in Scotland, and abroad, know that this is a great place to hear Scottish music in a totally informal setting – to be able to hear the music, see the musicians and chat to them - a unique experience.
