His keen awareness of the city, it’s history and cultural nuance, was exceptional to any tour I’ve been on prior. At the Waverley Bar, John performed some tradition Scottish folk songs along with contemporary songs heavily influenced by folk. Over a pint, the conversation was delightful. The tour is visually stunning, intellectually engaging, and just a pleasure all around. I’m so glad this was our last activity in Edinburgh and that we decided to hold off for a couple hours.
