How many other Session contributors do you know?
While recognising that thesession has members all around the globe, and love hearing from people in Canada, USA, Australia, NZ, Ireland, England, Wales and other European countries about their session experiences, I just wondered how many of you know each other in real life, or have even met as a result of contributing here? It is apparent from some posts that some of you actually play music together, but others who have become friends (or sparring partners!?) from interacting with each other on the site.
Before I joined "the session" I was on Mudcat (still am) and met quite a few other Mudcatters this way, including various visitors to Edinburgh looking for folk clubs or sessions to go to, and also going to a Scottish "Mudgather" arranged by one of the Scottish Mudcatters.
I also used to be on the Scottish "Footstompin" forum, which again brought me into real life contact with a number of people who were otherwise just names on an Internet page.
Looking forward to meeting one of thesession contributors again (real life!) tomorrow at a musical event.
A shared interest in music, including writing tunes, is a big bond.
