Founding a Society

Shortly after the inaugural meeting in early December, the founding members reconvened to discuss the founding of a society to embrace the enthusiasm of Scottish song.


A Committee was formed, chaired by James Muir on 27th December 1877, with a Constitution agreed that evening at the Royal Restaurant.


One of the Committee Members, David Murray, then proposed the name of "Ye Cronies", and thus a Club was born.

The earliest years of Ye Cronies saw members explore many avenues which, coupled with strong signs of musical talent, demonstrated a clear passion for social occassions.
