Occasionally the Inn offers live music in the bar or outside the Inn. This is normally on a Thursday evening or a Sunday afternoon. We are quite restricted by space in the bar so don't host many events, especially between April and September. We have a few regular acts who play throughout this time.

We also use our events calendar to promote/advise of other local events in the area so please check where the event is taking place!

Please also check out our Facebook page for updates or changes to events.

The Lewis McLaughlin trio (featuring Ewen White & Alasdair Hambrey) - Traditional & Modern Scottish music! from 9pm in the bar

Thursday 28th March

It's welcome back to the boys who have played with us in a couple of forms in the past. Should be a great night of music from these talented young musicians.

Lewis McLaughlin is a Singer/Songwriter and Multi-instrumentalist from Leith, Edinburgh. His singing style has been influenced by the likes of John Martyn, Bon Iver, Tom Waits and Bob Dylan. Lewis also draws influence from his background in Traditional Scottish music and combines this with other influences such as Indie and Jazz.

At the beginning of 2018 Lewis went into the studio to record his debut EP 'Back In Time' which was released in March. He recently released a video for the follow up single 'Deary Me'.
Lewis regularly performs around Scotland including highlights of performing at the Hidden Door Festival in Leith Theatre in 2016 and selling out The Brig Below in his hometown this year. He has also performed as far afield as England, France, Spain and Italy.

2019 looks to see the release of another EP, a tour with his Trio featuring Ewen White (Accordion) and Alasdair Hambrey (Fiddle) and dates with his full band.
