Dear Friends

November is a special month at The Magpie’s Nest as we bring to town some of the finest music makers from our Norther Scottish neighbours. There has been a very audible revolution going on within the music scene up there, Scotland being privileged in having a culture where traditional and popular music sit side by side with packed venues rocking out to a reel or jig as acceptably as anything MTV might endorse. So we have taken the mighty gamble, convinced that this is music that needs to be heard and booked some of our favourite, cutting edge bands just for you. There is a particular emphasis on one thing this month this is music that make you want to dance.
Come and hear it for yourself. You will not be underwhelmed!
