Trad Musicians in Totnes, Devon Area

Trad Musicians in Totnes, Devon Area

Hello everyone,
The wife and myself will be staying in Totnes for about a week from the 23rd up to the 30th of June.
I was wondering if there are any local musicians present on the site, and if any of them would like to get together for some tunes some night during next week.
Also, any information about active sessions in the area will be welcome.

Thanks!

Ben.

Look up the sessions for Devon. Not all close by, but; that’s what this site is for.

Searching for sessions in Totnes brings up this session at The Bay Horse:

https://thesession.org/sessions/3394

Clicking on "nearby members" under the map for that session shows members of The Session (who have added their location) near Totnes:

And here are nearby sessions (quite a few in Exeter):

Pete, I am aware of the different functions that the site offers. I am also aware of the fact that I might find a session online, drive 20 miles and walk into a bar in the middle of nowhere just to find out it has been cancelled 5 years ago - that is why I always try to contact locals or people that have any first hand knowledge.
The Bay Horse in Totnes is a great example, I walked in there two days ago and asked if there was an Irish music session happening, to which they replied by tilting their heads slightly to the left and saying: "I’m not sure what you mean by that". apparently there is an Irish session, a Bluegrass session, a singing session, a Folk session, a Celtic session, and a Jam Session happening in accordance with the calender date, humidity, air pressure, lunar eclipse times, tides etc.
And all I wanted to know was if anyone was up for a random tune in a pub.
That is why you need people - actual living things, to give you advice.
