Organising (and running) slow sessions- any tips?
the Dundee Acoustic Music Club will start to host “Slow Sessions” after their (more or less) monthly folk concerts on Sunday PMs. This has grown out of my impatience around the prospect of having to wait years before being able to join the “real speed” ones ..and being pretty sure I am not the one in this situation 🙂 So far I have the support of the Music Club, a very capable and enthusiastic facilitator, a back-up facilitator, a venue and some ideas where and how to advertise the events.
My question to you: would you mind sharing your top tips about organising and running slow sessions from your experience as organiser, participant (or observer)? What makes people attending a “Slow Session” happy? And what kills a “Slow Session”? I know that teething problems are normal but I would like to keep them to a minimum 🙂 Many thanks in advance for your help!
PS: I will announce details about the events shortly on the events page.
