Calling Seattle-area Irish music fans (who aren’t quite ready to sit in on a session)
Aspire to play at a session but not quite ready to take up unfamiliar tunes with unfamiliar faces?
We’re forming a practice for Seattle-area musicians interested in performing Irish music. The practice is aimed at folks looking to expand their repertoire and gain experience playing together in a friendly, supportive environment.
Our approach is to focus on a particular set of tunes for a particular period of time (or cycle). Once we’re comfortable with those, we’ll move on to another set.
All we ask of members is that you have basic competency on an instrument (preferably one commonly used to play Irish traditional music) and be willing to teach other practice members at least one tune per cycle.
