Sunday Online Learners’ Session

Sunday Online Learners’ Session

Hi all,

Every Sunday from 11-12h30 (CET) the Irish Music Learners of Stockholm (https://www.facebook.com/groups/IMLSTHLM) host a learners’ session via zoom. We go through the tunes we worked on the previous time, and then learn a new tune, and work on a few from our growing tune box. Yesterday we learned Banish Misfortune, and worked on Ellen O’Leary’s and a Tom Billy jig. This coming Sunday we will learn The Old Bush, and work on Chief O’Neill’s Favorite and Mrs. Crotty’s. The zoom link is provided about 15 minutes before the start of the session on the event page of the facebook group. All are welcome to join!

The version of Ellen O Leary’s here

https://thesession.org/tunes/12233#comment899651

is quite interesting, the tune shifts from 6/8 to 8/8 to 5/8.

If the tune is, in fact, a regular 6/8 jig it would be great if somebody could post a corrected setting.

Re: Sunday Online Learners’ Session

There’s counting problems in that version. The version we play is one I learned from Paudie O’Connor. The bones go like this:

X:1
T:Ellen O’Leary’s Jig
C:learned from Padraig O’Connor (20190919)
M:6/8
K:D

See our tunebook and google drive for recordings.

Looks like it just needs the C# turned into a quaver and the barlines put in the right place.

Only been to the Stockholm session (at O’Connell’s) once a couple years ago. Nice session, friendly bunch of folks. Hope we will all be able to get back to it again. Here in the States it seems like we are all online, doing Zoom or Jamkazam or something. Anyway, your tunes look like ones some of us know. Our slower session does Banish Misfortune with East at Glendart and Saddle the Pony, not necessarily in that order. Not sure about the time difference —11:00 am your time would be 5:00 am here. Hmmm. Anyway, have fun!

Thanks for coming Sergio!

The Learners’ Session continues this Sunday with a review of polkas: The Five Servants and Ballydesmond #1, and learning The Corkin Cross and Dan O’Connell’s.

Re: Sunday Online Learners’ Session

This sounds like fun, I might drop in this coming Sunday!
