Founded by singer/songwriters, Tom Fairnie and Mark Barnett, Foakies remains one of Edinburgh's most prestigious singer/songwriter and poetry evenings. It continues to provide a platform for a host of contemporary songwriters and poets, from the famous to the unknown, from writers steeped in the tradition to the stunningly original. In this series of concerts Foakies swaps it's Royal Oak home for the grandeur of St Cecilia's Hall, Scotland's oldest concert hall, in order to celebrate 11 years of excellence with a different performer each evening from the select list above and featured guests.
