A ‘research’ trip to Glasgow

Today I made a successful ‘field trip’ to Glasgow with my old accordion playing pal Stan Reeves. I had hoped to track down some fiddlers I know of in the city and lo and behold I met them all in a session at the famous Babbity Bowster pub.

I photographed the old fruit warehouse which became the Babbity when I surveyed all the listed buildings in the Merchant City in the mid 1970s. Little did I know that it would become a hotbed of musical revival!
