Other Folk

This is the first page of what will become several containing sometimes quite idiosyncratically chosen websites which may, or may not, be of interest.  But it is hoped they may have some relevance and use to Edinburgh FC members and visitors just passing by.

The nature of a lot of these websites is that they become out of date or are replaced.  Therefore those listed here are offered on the basis that Edinburgh Folk Club cannot be held responsible for the content of, as they say, these "third party" sites nor for the possibility that they may be defunct.

Please help us keep this page up to date and useful by passing along updates and new info.
