Pub with tradional folk music

Where staying at the Balmoral. Any suggestion on pubs frequented by locals that have traditional folk music? Thanks

I would suggest Biddy Mulligans in the grasmarket. You could walk it from the Balmoral in around 15 mins? You walk along Princess Street, up Lothian Road then down onto the grassmarket.

Your hotel staff will know where it is. It has a website as well. They have live bands on at selected times.

There are quite a few of the bars in the city centre with Folk Music. The White Hart and Biddy Milligans in The Grassmarket have a good atmosphere. Have a look at the website www.gigguide.co.uk/edinfolk. and you will find that there are a number in and around the Balmoral.

The best folk music in Edinburgh is at Sandy Bells on Forrest Road - just a short walk from Greyfriars Bobby's statue. See this website - www.bestpubs.co.uk/layout0.asp?pub=106128 or this - footstompin.com/articles/…sandy_bells

It's also worth checking out Whistlebinkies on the North Bridge, although they do have a real mix of stuff on.
