I have been playing the Piano Accordion for 4 years now and I was asked to come to a session on New Years Night. Only problem, is that this will be my first session and I am unsure as to how things work at sessions.
Is there a "leader" of some sort at the sessions?
What kind of tunes are mostly played (Reels, Jigs, Hornpipes etc.)?
How long do they go on for?
What kind of skill level are the people at the session going to be; Are we talking amateurs, elites, or a mixture of both?
Is there any sort of etiquette that I should be aware of?
Sorry for all the questions, but any answers would be greatly appreciated.
