NYC "growth" session
on ceolachan’s suggestion (go raibgh maith agat ceol) i’d like to know from people playing in the NYC area, ideally Manhattan, if there are any good "growth" sessions around. i’m using growth instead of slow to describe the type of session i’m looking for. hopefully i can dodge the anti-slow session sentiments. i’ve read those posts and i get it.
anyway, there was a recent thread regarding the slow session at the green briar in brighton, ma and i got curious whether anyone knows of anything similar in new york? i’d love to join in and learn some tunes and improve my technique with some other people also getting started on this trad journey. if there’s not, anyone interested in starting it?
i’m a whistle player, been playing for a few years now. i started by taking lessons from jimmy nugent up at boston college when i was at school there a few years ago. trying to kick my game up a notch and learn more than the 5 - 8 tunes or so that i know now.
