Copy of SLOW TRAD MUSIC SESSION #17

Slow Session(1).png

Fancy joining a trad music session but not quite up to speed?

Come along to our Slow Session and have a go at some well-known tunes and sets at a manageable pace. All instruments and abilities welcome!

Enjoy playing with other folk, get the chance to ask questions about session etiquette and don't worry about getting it wrong - mistakes are welcome here!

The sessions are led by the players themselves. Each month we learn one new tun together, practice the previous month's tune (Trumpet Hornpipe), and then play some of the tracks we've covered in the past, such as:
Leaving Lismore
Spootiskerry/Willafjord/Sleep Soond In Da Morning
Jig of Slurs/Atholl Highlanders
The Famous Baravan/The Soup Dragon
Jenny Dang The Weaver
Inisheer
Sìne Bhàn
Hector the Hero
Fairy Lullaby
Lisnagun
The Famous Baravan/The Soup Dragon
The Bear Dance/Breton Tune
Mon's Meg

The session can be adapted to suit those who come along, and if you've got a tune you'd like to share yourself then all the better. Any questions, just give us shout.

Free but donations are much-needed and very welcome!
Wheelchair access via concrete ramp.
