from Marilyn Elliott
not sure whether it's suitable for putting on The Commonty as it's
about something happening just over the border in Brampton. However, I
thought it might be of interest to people who live in The Borders and
I don't know if it's ever been publicised, but every Thursday
evening at The Stag Hotel in Moffat there is a folk-based jam session.
There never seems to be less than 7 musicians taking part and typically
consists of players of guitar, violin, squeeze box, bongo drum,
harmonica - varying each week. Whatever each week's mix, there is
always a great atmosphere and it's all free of charge.
