Traditional Irish Session

Every Sunday Afternoon  

3:00 - 6:00pm

The Sunday session is a fun, relaxed gathering where players of Irish traditional music can come together and share good tunes and good conversation.  It is above all meant to be fun, although we do take the music seriously.

Please note:  

This session is not intended for players who are new to their instrument or new to Irish music. 

New players are encouraged to come and listen, but should take private lessons or group classes first before jumping into a session.  If you have questions about whether you're a good fit for the session, don't hesitate to ask!

This slow session will give beginners a great opportunity to play tunes together without the pressure of a regular session.

The following tunes are on our free CD (available at the session only), so that you can learn the tunes at home.  Then, come to the slow session where you can get valuable practice playing these tunes together.  We will play slowly and repeat as many times as people want.  In a regular session you might play a tune only three times, but here we might play it 8 or 9 times, or more!
