TMSA Edinburgh & Lothians Branch

The aim of the Traditional Music and Song Association (TMSA) of Scotland is to promote and develop interest and participation in traditional music. Run on a voluntary basis by local people, the Edinburgh & Lothians Branch actively promotes Scottish traditional music and song by running events, ceilidhs, sessions and workshops such as the Northern Streams Festival and annual Muckle Sing events. The Branch is keen to increase involvement and encourage participation in cultural activities – particularly passing on the tradition from one generation to the next and sees the Northern Streams Festival, as an opportunity to promote this goal. The Branch also works in partnership with other local and national organisations to promote the rich heritage of Scotland's culture – such as with the Edinburgh Folk Club on their annual Carrying Stream Festival – celebrating the legacy of Hamish Henderson and his contemporaries who did so much to capture and pass on the traditions of the country.
