This well-known, local band simply enjoys entertaining. Formed some years back when they all met as members of Nitten Folk Club around 2010 when they got together to perform for a charity concert only to discover that this new band worked for them and their audience. They are now well-accomplished in presenting a range of styles from a-cappella to traditional, contemporary and self-penned material and their shows across Scotland over the past decade or so pre-covid found favour with their harmonies, range of songs and eclectic good humour. Ragged Glory toured extensively as part of the great WW1 commemorative show Far, Far From Ypres that played to sell-out concerts culminating in the Usher Hall, Edinburgh on Armistice Sunday 2018. Audiences at a Ragged Glory gig have always left with happy memories, a smile on their face, a song in their head and, of course, a new awful joke for their repertoire! Clearly a recipe that guarantees another memorable evening at the Edinburgh Folk Club.




The floor is yours! Songwriters and singers and instrumentalists welcome. Come along and try that new tune you've been learning or that song you've just finished writing in a mutually supportive gathering of folk just like yourself.

Admission £5 if you just want to listen or £2 for the performers; helps us to pay the room rent. Pay at the door from 7:30pm - these admissions aren't on line.

Edinburgh FC is so pleased to welcome back that force of musical nature that is the unique talent of Tim Edey . There is no-one who has seen Tim playing anywhere in the world doubting that. He's established this fact time and again over the past 20 years or so of touring and continues to do so.

So what does that mean in practical terms, what he can actually do? Tim plays a variety of instruments to an astonishing level of competence - in fact to put it like is really selling him far short of his musical expertise. Plus he has a ‘photographic’ memory for recalling music. His mind is best described as a ’musical super computer’ linked to a remarkable sensitivity and empathy. He plays guitar, accordion, banjo, piano/keyboards, ukulele, mandolin, bass guitar, bouzouki and whistles - all to concert standard! In addition to that the musical genres he straddles range from classical to classic pop via swing, gypsy jazz, world music, classic jazz, country (including flat picking blue grass) and all folk styles. In addition to all this Tim has a good singing voice.

To paraphrase the above, Tim is a highly entertaining musical genius added to which he has an uncanny knack of making audiences laugh – he is a natural presenter and raconteur. Tim has made frequent appearances on television and radio.

Artists Tim has worked with include the Chieftains, Christy Moore, Mary Black, Paul Brady, Sharon Shannon, Shane McGowan, Séamus Begley, Frankie Gavin, Altan, Ry Cooder, Eddi Reader, Steve Cooney, Julie Fowlis, Dougie Maclean, Capercaillie, Michael McGoldrick, Liam Ó Maonlaí, Ewan Vernal, Natalie MacMaster, Mike Harding and many more.
