I'm wondering if there is any classical guitar society or club in Edinburgh, Scotland? The final year of the degree is stressfully coming and I'm trying to find a club to give myself a good reason to leave the house/office during this rainny summer time :D
Hi Dora - did you find anything about a local Edinburgh society? I've not found any reference to a society as such, but I've found that there are a couple of ensembles for classical guitarists in town (not what I'm looking for at the moment, but thought the links might be useful for you).

Hi Craig,
Thanks a lot for the info. I don't really fancy the idea of guitar ensemble though...

Hello everyone.
I’m getting back into playing after a long layoff. I now live in the Raleigh NC area and was wondering if anyone knows of any clubs, societies or groups in the area. Maybe even some stores that specialize in CG. All I have been able to find around here is GC, SA, and MF and the classical selection is bleak.
Thanks
Daniel

Thank you. With all my searching this never came up.
