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. It really colored our experience with a warm and unforgettable memory."..."
