TUESDAY 17 to SATURDAY 21 AUGUST 2021 (inc)


Dateline: Monday 16 August 2021
Thanks to funding received from EventScotland, AMC is running a limited programme of ten shows from Tuesday 17 to Saturday 21 August 2021. This is all a bit rushed but it's a good all-Scottish (well, very nearly) programme.

We've now got this website sorted out and everything seems to be correctly in place. Social distancing meant our usual maximum seating capacity of 80 was severely reduced of course (without EventScotland we would not be running these shows because of that). However, on August 9 the Scottish government changed all that and we now have 60 seats on sale for each of our shows.. :)

UKRAINIAN COMMUNITY CENTRE
The Ukrainian Community Centre (aka UCC) at 14 Royal Terrace, Edinburgh EH7 5AB is literally just around the corner from Edinburgh's biggest theatre, The Playhouse and is handy for ...

  • the top of Leith Walk and London Road (many city service buses and buses serving East Lothian stop at the Leith Walk end of London Road)
  • Waverley railway station at the east end of Princes Street
  • St Andrew Square bus station just off the middle of York Place
  • the tram's current terminus at the east end of York Place / top of Leith Walk

UCC is less than one mile (about 1.35 km) from the Fringe Office in the High Street (click here for map). There are some good restaurants and pubs nearby in Leith Walk, along with numerous local and specialist shops. [See Google maps Ukrainian Community Centre, Edinburgh]

ROYAL TERRACE
Royal Terrace (pictured left - looking west to east) runs along the north side of Calton Hill and was designed by the renowned Scottish architect, William Playfair.  Playfair's plan is dated 1819. The terrace was finally completed to Playfair's design in 1860 and is the longest continuous street of Georgian town houses in Edinburgh. Royal Terrace became known as the Amber Mile or Whisky Row because of the number of whisky merchants living there who were reputed to be able to watch their wares being shipped into and abroad from the port of Leith (which must have been before the trees looking down on to London Road matured and obstructed the view!).

 A NOTE ABOUT AMC2022

The Acoustic Music Centre for 2019 ended on Sunday 25 August. COVID-19 led to AMC not running in August 2020. This year, 2021, we ran a reduced AMC of only five nights / ten gigs just to keep our presence 'out there'.

We do hope to be fully operational again in 2022 from Monday 8 to Sunday 28 August (tbc) with our usual full programme of 70-80 great shows.
 
As of today's dateline, we may leave in place some of the out-of-date aspects
of this site to give you an idea of what usually happens at AMC. However we really do hope that come August 2022 we will not need the COVID rules page will is currently
here.

We are now accepting proposals from shows which wish to book slots in 2022.

STONEYPORT ASSOCIATES, an entertainments agency based in Edinburgh, has brought together the shows which will perform at the ACOUSTIC MUSIC CENTRE @ UCC in August during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Previously, from 2005 to 2016 (inc), the Acoustic Music Centre was at St Bride's Centre on the west side of the city centre and was the 'go to' Edinburgh Festival Fringe venue for audiences looking for good acoustic, roots, folk, Celtic music (amongst other things). Something like 70%-75% of that kind of music being presented annually on the Edinburgh Fringe happened in St Bride's. In early 2017 that had to change and AMC found a new home @ UCC.

AMC actually began in 1982 elsewhere in Edinburgh, in Chamber's Street Students Union (no longer with us - now offices!!) where it ran very successfully until 1995.
