165 Jed and Jo - Dalriada Sunday Sessions Online
Apr 11, 2020
David Calder, Jed Milroy, Jo Milroy

The Dalriada has been a fundamental part of life in Portobello for many years. Music has played a large part of that with both organised and impromptu sessions regularly taking place in the bar. The Sunday Sessions were particularly popular with musicians and the public alike. They were the brainchild of Jed Milroy who was looking for a new venue – he had been hosting sessions at a pub near the university. The Dalriada not only welcomed him – but also played cupid because Jed met Jo and they became a duo in every sense of the word. 

The Dalriada as we knew it may never return when life returns to the new normal. But the Sunday Sessions have continued online since the lock down. So today, we’re telling the story of Jed and Jo, the story too of those Sunday Sessions and their importance to the community into the future.

Jed and Jo are also running their own regular online sessions at 9 o’clock on a Friday using Facebook Live. The music in this episode comes from one of those. The couple are also entertaining the other residents in their tenement by singing from their front door and are also raising money for the charity North Edinburgh Arts.
