'Formed in 1997 with the aim of promoting Scottish fiddle music and other related styles in the Falkirk area. The core aims of the workshop remain to encourage good performance practice, to enable players to develop an appreciation of the techniques and characteristics essential to the authentic performance of this music. We also aim to create an informal and relaxed setting for this to take place.'

‘The membership and supporters continue to work hard to develop and promote folk and traditional music throughout the Falkirk area and host regular Sessions, Open Stage and Special Events providing opportunities for budding musicians and songwriters to air their talents, gain performance experience and essentially enjoy participation in the music. The Club has a friendly, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere making for a good night out and strives to provide great quality from across the broad spectrum of folk music and on occasion, should the visiting act perhaps fail to captivate you, then hopefully the floor spots, heckling and the banter will always make up for it!’

Kinneil Band was founded in 1858 by the miners of Kinneil Pit and the workers of Wilson’s Kinneil Iron Works in their home town of Bo’ness, West Lothian. The founder members decided to name their new band “Kinneil Band”,  famously known since that day. The band’s founding members each donated £ 5 each to enable the purchase of the band’s first set of instruments ... Kinneil maintained a strong link to the local mine workers, who subscribed to the band until the colliery closed in 1983. Shortly after the closure of the colliery, support was received from the National Union of Public Employees. In 1993, NUPE amalgamated with the other public sector unions to form UNISON and the band changed its name to UNISON Kinneil Band to mark their continued support.’
